Meet Your Financial Aid Team

As the Director of Financial Aid, I am responsible for the operations of the Financial Aid Office. One important piece of advice for those hoping to receive financial aid:  Be aware of application deadlines and submit financial aid documents in a timely manner. Completing financial aid applications early prevents delays in receiving funds, and could mean the difference in receiving a grant or not. Students who have turned in their applications early are given priority for aid sources that have limited funds.

I am happy to be here to assist Bastyr ND students, both at the Kenmore and San Diego campuses.  Don't hesitate to reach out to me or any of my team members, we are all here to help. The best piece of advice I can give you is to check MyBU each quarter about two weeks before a new quarter is to begin.  If you don't have financial aid in place, contact us immediately!  If you wait until the term begins, it's too late for us to get your money here on time.  You can also subscribe to Financial Aid under our Forums section to be notified when we make an official announcement.

I am excited to help you learn the elements of financial aid that are important to your particular circumstances and program. Being timely, thorough and meeting deadlines in filling out forms and other required steps will serve you well. I will do all I can to make the process understandable so that you can efficiently complete the portions that are your responsibility – and then re-focus on the priority - your studies.

As Work Study Coordinator, I am responsible for all aspects of the work study program from posting jobs to entering information into the payroll system. A work study position can help you with your educational expenses. It can also give you valuable experience in your field of study. When you are filling out the FAFSA make sure that you check the “interested in work study” box and also check the work study box on the Bastyr Financial Aid Application.
