Office Hours

By appointment


I serve as the director of the Academic Support and Achievement Program (ASAP), a resource center for undergraduate students in AHS. This space includes daily tutoring, regular academic and career-related workshops, and community building for undergraduate students in the college. ASAP provides academic and social support in order to graduate competent and UIC connected professionals in the various health fields.

I manage our student staff and create all of the programming out of this space. I am involved with a number of initiatives that help in the overall retention and academic achievement of undergraduate students. This includes the Applied Health Sciences: Summer Exploration and Transition program (AHS SET), the Presidential Awards Program (PAP), the Probation Advising Program (Pro-AP), and new student convocation, among others.

If you are having any problem and are unsure where to go, you are always welcome to come see me to assist you. If I don’t know the answer, I will help you get connected to someone who can help you.
