Academic Advisor I

Art Bldg, Room 11A
520-621-2618

BM, Eastman School of Music; MM, University of Michigan; DMA, University of Arizona

I began advising in the School of Art in November 2022. I enjoy working with students, staff, and faculty. I thrive on working with students, both one on one and in group settings. It is my lifetime goal to help and influence people in a positive way, and I have found no more satisfying way to do this than as an academic advisor and teacher. In addition – as many of you have come to know – I have a quirky sense of humor, and if I can make someone laugh or smile, it makes my day. Previous to my position in Art, I was an academic advisor (for 1.5 years) in the UA Department of Computer Science, and an academic advisor (for 17 years) in the UA School of Theatre, Film & Television.

A little about my background:  I grew up in several places throughout the country (Tucson, upstate New York, Southern California), the daughter of a university professor. I have moved around a bit as an adult as well (Michigan, Texas), and I have four degrees in music performance. In addition to my UA academic advisor position I am a professional classical musician, and am currently principal viola with the Arizona Opera. In the late 1990s I was a full-time music faculty member at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my artist husband Eric (who also works here at UA) and our two teenagers.

The renovated Marroney Theatre reopens this week with the debut of Sweeney Todd by UA School of Theatre, Film & Television, celebrating the newly christened stage named in honor of one of our most beloved alumni, actor Craig T. Nelson.

The theatre has new seating, state-of-the-art screening equipment, and a sound system. These updates will allow the venue to double as one of the most technologically advanced film screening rooms in Tucson. Plus, there are upgrades to the east entry, lobby, box office, and restrooms.

β€œThe reopening of the Marroney Theatre marks an important milestone for the Arizona Arts Master Plan,” said Andrew Schulz, vice president for the arts. β€œWe have upgraded a space used by generations of theatre students and soon by our film students as well.

All of this was made possible thanks to the generosity of private donors as well as university leadership who provided critical matching funds.
