I grew up in Connecticut and New Jersey, went to Rutgers for undergraduate study, majored in history, and did graduate work in counseling psychology at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. I have been with Penn State since 1970, coming to the University even before the Division of Undergraduate Studies was formed. I worked for five years at the Delaware County campus before moving to University Park.
The Division of Undergraduate Studies has been my "home" at Penn State since 1973. I especially enjoy working with exploratory students as they discover the educational options available to them.
As the executive director of the division, I also have administrative responsibilities. Should any student wish to discuss with me a particular issue about DUS, please do not hesitate to contact me.
