I am very grateful to be working at my alma mater. AMSU continues to have a family atmosphere and remains committed to Academics, Arts and Service. Years have passed and faces have changed, but the core values that have always been represented here are ever present to this day. Being back here in the role of Guidance Department Chairperson is quite surreal. AMSU was and is a very important part of my life. Guiding students through their daily struggles is paramount for me, and making a difference in their lives allows for fulfillment in mine. The support and appreciation I receive from the administration and faculty on a daily basis, is greatly appreciated.

I’m back home……and welcomed with open arms!
