    I assist returning students transition back to the university, general education transfer questions including the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum, and visiting with transfer students in office appointments. I am originally from Worthington, Ohio, and attended MSUM for my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education. The great thing about the F-M area is our vibrant change of seasons, and the best part of working at MSUM is the great faculty, staff and students I get to work with every day.
