About me

I am the Associate Dean of Career and Professional Development  (CPD) for Thomas M. Cooley Law School. I connect law students to employment through the CPD Office, which has 8 career advisers and 5 administrative assistants. The CPD Office provides services to Cooley law students (career exploration, job search skills, resume and cover letter reviews, mentoring and networking events, on campus interviews, resume collections, mock interviews, resources, and publications) and to employers (candidate searches, on campus interview facilities, employee search facilitation, and consultations).
