2023-24 Admissions & Advising TA

I am an international student from Vietnam. I graduated from Western in 2021 and returned to earn a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I understand how challenging it can be to be a student. Besides academic work, we have a million things to think about and take care of, and sometimes it can be very overwhelming. Therefore, I want to make myself available and I hope my help will take some weight off students’ shoulders when it comes to major selection, specifically Psychology and its requirements at Western.

Undergraduate Major Coordinator

I earned a BS in psychology and BA in creative writing before building this position in 2018. Since the start, working with students has been by far the most rewarding aspect of my job. Over the years, I have leaned into a motto: "How can I help?" Providing program clarity, options, and support is vital to your success as a student so, please, let me know how I can help.

2023-24 Admissions & Advising TA

Having grown up in a small town in Brazil, I learned the importance of service from an early age. After earning my dual BA degrees in Psychology and Education, Communities, & Organizations from UW, I dedicated myself to assisting high school students in navigating the challenges of this developmental stage and the education system. Now pursuing my Masters in School Counseling, my passion lies in assisting, serving, and aiding everyone. Feel free to drop by my office anytime to connect and ask questions.


Prospective, Transfer, Interest, Minor, Post-undergrad, and International students!

If you pursue psychology or human development at Western we are your primary advisors until you officially declare the major, at which point you will be paired with a faculty advisor.

The Department of Psychology is large and impacted (the # of students who want to major exceeds space available.) That said, we want to ensure you're able to have your questions answered quickly and efficiently.

Please select the type of advising that serves you best, below. Note: All advising is currently remote.

We look forward to working with you!
