Hello Fellow Dragons!

As the Director of Counseling and Wellness, I am excited to support our Tiffin University students. I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Wright State University and my Master's Degree from Heidelberg University. My husband is from England and is a university soccer coach; my daughter is starting her 2nd year at college this Fall. Needless to say, I understand how wonderful yet stressful transitioning to college can be for students and their families. We currently live in Michigan where we enjoy many outdoor adventures including boating, kayaking and hiking. I look forward to meeting you soon.
