Our Passionate Advisors

Academic Advisors

Here at OHDELA, we assign every student to an Academic Advisor to help them every step of the way. Our advisors not only assign classes to each student, but also stay in communication during the year to provide assistance in many ways.  Below are the advisor telephone numbers. If you have any questions or concerns, start with them and we will be happy to help you!

Being able to be a part of my students' educational journey is an honor and a privilege. To see a student grow from the beginning of the school year to the end is a joy. Seeing that drive inspires me everyday to continue to work hard for my students and their academic success. I have worked in different areas in education and one thing holds true is that the students are the driver in what I do. As an academic, I am here to be part of the team that is behind each and everyone of our students.

I’ve always loved to learn and realized I loved teaching and conversing with others when I was just a kid. I enjoyed spending time reading between the lines of books with my younger brother and talking about the ideas we would find in the text. Now, I enjoy using this love for learning to understand and relate to those from many different backgrounds that we serve here at OHDELA. Being a middle school academic advisor here has really allowed me to grow my sense of self, deepen my curiosities, and expand my relationship with our community.

Today is the day where you define what your tomorrow will bring. It is up to you and only you to make a decision to work harder, become a leader, accomplish your highest goals and reach your highest potential. What you accomplish today will define your tomorrow, your future and the world around you. Take pride in what you learn, for that knowledge will bring you success, fulfillment and character that no one can ever take away from you.

I am thrilled to be starting my 13th year with the Ohio Distance and Electronic Learning Academy as an academic advisor. My true passions are teaching myself to utilize new technologies and developing positive relationships with students. In my spare time, I make films, build Lego with my two children; Mia and Danny, and wrestle things out of my puppy’s mouth that he should not have. I look forward to the next chapter in my OHDELA career!
