Amy has been with Albertus Magnus College since 2004. Before joining Division of Professional and Graduate Studies as an academic advisor in 2008, Amy worked in the Career Center at Albertus. Currently, Amy advises undergraduate students before they declare a major.

Amy's advice for adult learners is to follow her golden rule that “Timing is everything”, whether for registration, add/ drop periods, or most importantly staying on track with academic work. Since our module classes are accelerated over eight weeks, it is most important to keep up with course work demands.

Amy believes that “In applying to and being admitted to a degree program, our adult students have chosen to be part of a supportive academic community where they can pursue academic and career goals.” To take the journey with students as they travel this path is an honor to Amy, and she invites her students to contact her with any questions or concerns. Helping students to complete their degree is her number one priority.
