Artist & Urban Sketcher (#JPSInkArt)
Creativity, art, and innovation are critical pieces of who I am. I began to rediscover my love of artistic expression after completing my Ph.D. Now it is rare to find me without a sketchbook close to hand. You can follow along with my journey to improve my artistic skills on social media. You can follow along with my journey here:
Higher Education Professional
I am an experienced higher education professional with over 21 years of service, since I began my career as a humble AmeriCorps* VISTA volunteer. I earned a masters and Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration and Student Affairs and serve as the Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs at Niagara University. I hold several leadership positions at NACADA The Global Community for Academic Advising and WNY Advising, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and have strong interests related to advising, technology, social justice, creativity, and professional development in higher education.
I am one of the founding members of SAProArt, a group of Student Affairs Professionals, Faculty, and Advisors, who enjoy creativity, art, and innovation in all its forms. Please feel free to join the #SAProArt Community, download our coloring book, and learn about our various presentations.
