Assistant Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid
B.A. Bowling Green State University
Psy.D. Phillips Graduate University
I joined WMU-Cooley Law School in January 2019 as the inaugural Assistant Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid. Our office oversees all areas of the admissions recruitment and retention efforts of future law students as well as providing financial aid support and financial literacy to incoming and current students.
Prior to joining the law school, I served as Director of Admissions at Michigan State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine where I strategically developed enrollment initiatives, marketing campaigns, served on national panels at conferences, reviewed applications, conducted MMI’s, financial aid support, provided advising to prospective medical students and increased the diversity and wellness initiatives for matriculated students. I also served as the Manager of Outreach, Integration, and Evaluation for pipeline recruitment initiatives prior to moving into my role as the Director of Admissions. These efforts consisted of overseeing day visits, weekend and summer programs to enhance the exposure and interest of osteopathic medicine to middle school, high school, and undergraduate students.
Before moving back to Michigan, I lived in Los Angeles for over 13 years, working in organizational development, strategic program advising, project management, training, and recruitment. My work within Los Angeles County stretched from mental health social services, for-profit organizations, non-profit organizations, educational institutions as well as small businesses.
I received my B.A. in Ethnic Studies from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, and my Psy.D. from Phillips Graduate University in Chatsworth, California. I also hold certificates from California State University in project management, and from MSU in crucial conversations training, and understanding implicit bias.
