Every incoming student is assigned an Academic Advising Coordinator, also known as an Academic Advisor. This assignment is made by last name and not by discipline. 

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

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and am a pretty loyal expat.  I love living in Denver, visiting all of the different neighborhoods, exploring restaurants, and riding my bike around town.  I realized I wanted to work in higher education while serving as a peer advisor my senior year at the University of Iowa.  I am excited to be at Mines doing what I love- working with students and providing academic support.  I look forward to hearing about your goals and being here to encourage you as you work toward achieving those goals.  My personal interests include cooking, reading, spending time with friends and family, and traveling.  I hope to meet you soon!

I am a Colorado native raised in a family full of love, righteousness, and amazing food! My passion for helping students succeed is built on the pursuit of my education and how that helped me transform and widen my perspective of the world around me.  As a first-generation student, my path to this moment has come with a fair amount of difficulty and from that difficulty came growth and a fresh sense of purpose- something I hope to share with the students I serve. I love getting to know people, spending time with my family and friends, hiking, reading, learning, music, art, sports and everything in between.  

With that said, I’m proud to be a part of the Mines community!

I am a Colorado native and a Mines alumna.  I love being back here at Mines helping students through this amazing institution.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, food, naps, craft projects, reading, funny videos, travel, and exploring whatever I find interesting.  I encourage you to ask questions and explore what your heart pulls you to while you are here.  Push beyond your comfort zone a little and try something new.  You never know what you may find.  I also keep snacks in my office in the cupcake cookie jar on my desk (and candy in my candy dish), so stop in if you need a quick snack!
