Becky came to the Department of Political Science Advising Office in 2016. Becky holds an AA from Anoka Ramsey Community College, and both a BA in Psychology and a Master's of Liberal Arts degree, both from the University of Minnesota -Twin Cities. Her Master's degree focused on Adult Education, Counseling, and Restorative Justice. As Becky was a non-traditional, transfer student herself, she understands unique situations. Both going through her education and working, with an invisible disability, has taught Becky that it is important to find solutions to educational barriers.

Becky advised for 2 years in the Department of Sociology, 11 years in the Department of Psychology, and in the Department of Political Science Advising office since 2016. She finds that the change to Political Science Advising offers her an exciting opportunity to work with many students with different perspectives.

Becky collaborates across campus, does both classroom and event presentations, and helps in managing advising projects. However, her interest and focus is in working individually with undergraduate students. In using her counseling and adult education graduate background, Becky loves to focus her work with students on their academics in political science, but also in planning for their post graduation transition, and finding ways to connect.
