Title IX Coordinator

Photo of Butterfly BlaiseIt can be intimidating to tell your story and share your experiences with an individual that you do not know. I want to communicate to those wishing to tell their story or seek support, that the Title IX office is a safe, autonomous, and non-judgmental environment. Regardless of your experience or choices, you will be respected, treated equitably, and provided resources and support. As the Title IX Coordinator, I consider the opportunity to sit with others and get a glimpse into their lives, a privilege.

A little bit about me: A graduate of SUNY Plattsburgh, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. As a local to the area, I have had the opportunity to work in different settings and with different populations in the community.

My work both on-campus and off-campus has been focused on education, prevention, and solution to the issues of violence that we face as a community. I am entering my 8th year of being a member of SUNY Plattsburgh community and when I am not here on campus serving in my role as Title IX Coordinator or teaching in the GWS department, I am home in the country with my 6 children.
