Scheduling an Appointment

  • All appointments will be held via phone call or Zoom (video/audio call) at this time.
  • Please request an advising appointment using the Navigate app. Here are instructions for scheduling an appointment. (UM is no longer using Starfish.)
  • If Navigate doesn’t work for you (or you don't have access to Navigate), you are welcome to schedule time with me using my Calendly scheduling link. (The timeslots are in 30-minute increments, but please select two consecutive spots if you feel like you need an hour.) Note that Calendly will not take your class schedule into consideration in the way that Navigate does, so you'll see all of my availability, but it won't necessarily match up with your availability.
  • Please remember all appointments are in the Mountain Time Zone.


Preparing for your Appointment

  1. Please make sure you are in a place where you can access the internet and be distraction-free. I know this last part may be tough, but I will need your focus during our time together to give you the best possible advice and teach you some of the advising tools.
  2. If you haven't used Zoom before (or haven't used it in a while), you may want to give yourself a few minutes before the meeting to see if there's anything that Zoom needs to download/update on your device. If you feel more comfortable with your video setting off, that's fine! I'll have my video on so you'll get a glimpse at my cluttered office or a random digital background.
  3. Please be ready to take notes - there may be action items for you!


Have a Quick Question?

  • I’d be happy to answer your quick questions during my drop-in advising hours. During these drop-in chat times, I will not be able to give you a full advising appointment. If that's what you're seeking, please schedule an advising appointment.
  • For Psychology Majors and Minors: Drop-in Advising Hours (Zoom only) - Tuesdays @ 3:00-4:30 p.m.
  • General, including Psychology, Drop-In Advising Hours (Zoom only) - Wednesdays @ 1:00-3:00 p.m.
  • Please use this link:; Meeting ID, if that’s easier: 675 622 4589
  • Note: If I'm helping another student, you may be in my Zoom waiting room for a few minutes. Enjoy the message that I’ve written there. :) Also, if your name looks suspicious or fake (e.g. Bart Simpson), I may not admit you into my Zoom Room. Please make sure that you are using your real name. Changing your name to include your pronouns is fantastic!
