Prior to joining the Dietrich family, I spent almost seven years working at the School of General Studies at Columbia University.  At GS, I oversaw all the programming in the Dean of Students Office related to student life, retention initiatives, international programs and academic support services, while playing a key supervisory role in academic advising. Now, I have the pleasure of serving at the leader of the amazing academic advising team here at Dietrich.  This is a great group of individuals ready to help you in any way.  Please stop by and say hello.  I can’t wait to meet all of you!


I have several cities that I call home: Miami, FL, New York, NY, and more recently, Pittsburgh, PA.  I received my bachelor of science degree from the Stern School of Business at New York University’s and a master of arts and master of education in higher and post-secondary education from Teachers College at Columbia University.  When I’m not at the office, I am taking some time to get to know the city of Pittsburgh.  I love the outdoors, so don’t be surprised if you find me running around town or hiking in the nearby parks.

While at Rutgers University, I spent my undergraduate years studying urban elementary education. For three years I taught remedial reading to high school and adult students before moving to Pittsburgh. I have been working in the AAC since 1982. I have my M.Ed. in Adult Education from Penn State University and my Masters Certificate in Academic Advising from Kansas State University. 'Life-long learning' is an interest and commitment in education that I have been developing; this is was no surprise to me as I learned that my top "strength" (StrengthsQuest) is Learning.

When not at work, I have been learning how to Zumba.  I also love to learn about and experience new cultures!

I have lived in southwestern PA my entire life.  I grew up a country girl, but I love my life in the city. I attended St. Vincent College for my undergraduate studies in Sociology and earned my master’s degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  Since beginning my professional career in higher education I have worked at several colleges and universities in different capacities.  Academic Advising is something I have found that I am not only passionate about, but that I enjoy very much.  Being part of the Carnegie Mellon University community and the Dietrich College feels like a professional dream come true.  The students, faculty and staff here remind me why I do what I do every day.


When I am not at CMU with my campus family, I enjoy doing improvement projects around my house, taking advantage of all the fun things there are to do in Pittsburgh, cooking and spending time with my family and friends.

I grew up outside of Pittsburgh in the small city of Jeannette, PA.  I attended Clarion University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2011 and received a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Chatham University in May of 2013.  I was a student-athlete for four years and I am still coaching swimming at the collegiate level.  I have experience in both career and academic counseling where I worked specifically with undeclared students.  The skills and knowledge I gained will help me in academic advising, as well as making a positive impact on the lives of Carnegie Mellon University students.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, doing CrossFit, and reading.  My door is always open, so feel free to stop by!  I look forward to meeting you!

I grew up in South China where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language.  After earning a Master of Science in Higher Education Administration from University of Rochester, I moved to Pittsburgh with my family in 2011. Professionally, I have experience working with international students on their adjustment to the US as well as teaching Chinese language and culture to international students. 


Having joined the Dietrich College Academic Advisory Center recently, I am as excited as you to be part of the CMU community. I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in your success at CMU!
