Director, Student Care & Assistance
My goal is to provide support, care, and access to resources to assist students who encounter challenges or concerns in achieving success at Iowa. Many students experience difficulties during college that impact their ability to fully participate academically and socially on campus. These challenges may come in the form of crisis and emergency situations, such as death of a family member, victim of a violent crime, accident, apartment/house fire, medical emergency, or a concern in which a student needs direction to the appropriate resource on campus. I provide assistance to students in a manner that best meets the student’s needs by partnering with family members, campus colleagues, and through my work with the Early Intervention Team and Threat Assessment Care Team. The Office of the Dean of Students is a central location that provides coordinated efforts to assist students with overcoming challenges to be successful and continue on a path towards graduation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding student assistance or to discuss a student concern or issue.
