I am a transplanted southerner from Tuscaloosa, AL who has been with UNL for the past 16 years. Before stepping into my current position, I served students as a counselor at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). Working through that office, much of my work was focused on underrepresented students. In fact, I have been the advisor for the Afrikan People’s Union (APU) for about twelve years. (The organization is the black student government for UNL.) Before coming to UNL, I worked for the University of Alabama’s Brewer Porch Children's Center. Moreover, I received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Psychology (with minors in English and Spanish) and Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from the University of Alabama as well.
I enjoy my role as Director of the Office of Academic Success and Intercultural Services (OASIS) and Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center. We have a wonderful team at OASIS and I feel we will do great things in the lives of the students that we serve. As always, we have much to accomplish this year and it all begins with our desire to help our students succeed. As I often tell my staff and students, the goal is to “Go Be Amazing”! And of course—Go BIG RED!! .
