Deans and Staff
I’ve worked for Western for almost 24 years and am also a Western graduate earning both my bachelors and masters degrees here. I’ll be teleworking, but I’m readily available via e-mail. Please contact me for issues relating to student funding, travel grants, assistantships, student insurance, Graduate Faculty Governance Committee inquiries, Graduate school policy questions, and generally any urgent matters.
Graduate Admissions and Systems Analyst
I expect to be working remotely for the time being, and am available via email and also on MS Teams for chat/video calls. Contact for questions relating to Grad Admissions processes/systems/data, TA awards, Grad School Scholarship/Waiver offers, and TA Health Insurance.
I earned my BA and MFA degrees at Western, and I have over 20 years of experience in higher ed student services. I'm working remotely, and am available via phone, email, or Teams.
Contact me for information about graduate student services and programming, degree requirements and academic progress, thesis questions, financial aid appeals, continuous enrollment, and other current student concerns.
Like my colleagues, I am currently working remotely and the best way to reach me during this time is via email.
My experience as a graduate student has allowed me to provide helpful information to prospective students. Feel free to contact me for admissions inquiries if you are gathering initial information about becoming a graduate student. (I can share things I wish I would have known before I started my graduate school career and/or done differently.)
For current graduate students or faculty, contact me for information about application status, commencement ceremonies, master’s degree application e-sign forms, and overrides for Continuous Enrollment (GRAD 699) or thesis credits (690).
Assistant to the Dean/Front Desk
I will be working remotely for the time being, but am available via email, and for Western faculty, staff, and students, I am available via Microsoft Teams in Office 365. I can take Teams audio and video calls by appointment if you prefer that over email or chat.
Contact me for questions regarding Graduate Faculty Governance Council, marketing/recruiting, diploma mailing/reprints, Graduate School website updates, the Graduate School's social media, and general information.
