I serve as the Associate Vice President for Operations and Planning for the division of Student Affairs at CWRU. I oversee assessment, strategic planning, finance, human resources, information technology, marketing, special events, and project management within Student Affairs as well as various operational areas in departments reporting to the Office of the Provost.

I have been working in higher education for over 35 years and at CWRU for 25 of those years. My educational background is in psychology, counseling and nonprofit management. I have been engaged with serving students ever since I was an undergraduate resident assistant. I enjoy spending time with my family, doing home improvement projects, building furniture and wooden model sailing ships, and snorkeling.
