Interests & Expertise

Professional advisors like Aggie occupy a unique niche within the university as they guide, assist, and educate students from the first weeks of college through graduation. Aggie advises undergraduate students seeking degrees in Communication Sciences & Disorders and Occupational Studies as well as students interested in the Therapeutic Recreation Certificate and post-baccalaureate prerequisites for a Doctorate of Physical Therapy and Master of Science in Occupational Therapy.

Prior to working in the College of Health Sciences, Aggie was involved in academic advising at UWM in L&S with additional experience in Residence Life, Leadership Studies and Programs, New Student Services, and Financial Aid.

As your academic advisor, I help students understand university policies and procedures, learn degree requirements, select appropriate classes, and identify the many other resources here at UWM. I hope to provide the assistance needed to guide you toward your academic and professional career goals. I hope to help you have a great experience at UW-Milwaukee!
