As the Undergraduate Program Coordinator, I manage and maintain all student records for the undergraduate program in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department.  I process drop/add forms, course substitutions and waivers, manage student advisers’ assignments, maintain the application process for Undergraduate Independent Research opportunities, and serve as a resource to faculty, staff, and students on policies, procedures, grades, degree requirements, and course requirements.

In addition to supporting the administrative needs for the undergraduate students, I build and maintain the Graduate and Undergraduate courses in LionPATH for the Biochemistry and Molecular Department.
