Every incoming student is assigned an Academic Advising Coordinator. This assignment is made by last name and not by discipline. 

Students will work with their respective Coordinator to plan their course schedule, explore various majors and disciplines, and project their course sequence. Students may also work with these individuals to further strengthen their studying, preparation, and test-taking skills. 

Students will work with their Coordinator until they transition to Faculty Advisor within chosen academic majors.

I love working with students and helping them succeed and can’t wait to work with the students of Mines.  I have a spunky dachshund dog named Keebler and I enjoy reading, watching baseball (Go Orioles!), running and going on adventures.
