Hi! I’m Amy and I’m incredibly excited to be working with passionate students, staff,
faculty, and community members to create a more culturally and socially conscious
and inclusive campus community! While I’m not from the UP originally and have never
experienced a true Yooper winter yet, I consider myself an “Outdoorsbian” and am elated
to spend as much time outdoors [especially in the winter] as possible. In addition
to loving the outdoors, I also consider myself a subpar weightlifter; a pizza/donut/coffee
aficionado [which may feel contrary to the fact prior]; a hip hop enthusiast; a highly
invested cat lady [I have two very needy cats – Mildred and Oswald]; and someone who
loves people. My office is on the 2nd floor in CDI and whether you’re just passing
through for some coffee, in need of a chat or a hug, or just want to come and discuss
life – I’m here [with a big couch and a bowl of candy]!
I was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. After studying cultural anthropology
and education, I’ve found the perfect home at CDI. I love to travel and be outdoors.
My family and I love camping, hiking, and kayaking. I am dedicated and deeply invested
in seeing students succeed, not only academically and professionally but also as human
Hi Everyone! I am the Office Assistant at CDI. As well as working with really great
people I like meeting and chatting all the students that stop by and hang out. My
favorite "duty" it to make sure the coffee pots keep full all morning! I was raised
in the Southern U.P. (Daggett/Stephenson), came to Houghton to attend Mich Tech, graduated
in '89 with a BS in Business/Finance, and just never left. When I am not working,
I enjoy crocheting (not knitting), painting furniture, mowing my lawn in the short
summer season, walking the NARA trails and trying new recipes for the crockpot. So,
as you stop by for that cup of coffee, look to your left and you'll get a "HI!" from
Hello friends! I am the Coordinator of Multicultural Programs at CDI. I am from Fort
Lauderdale, Florida, and it is my absolute pleasure to be here and serve the community
of Michigan Tech. I am passionate about helping students reach their highest potential.
I am also a continuous learner, so I am always willing and ready to receive any piece
of knowledge others care to share with me. In my spare time, I am writing my dissertation,
which focus on Black college male students and mental health. The best thing about
the UP is the people who are genuine. My office is on the 2nd floor in CDI, so you
are personally invited to stop by anytime to say hello.
I am the senior administrative aide in the Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI).
Born and raised in the “big” City of Hancock, I graduated from Hancock High School
and worked in banking for 25 years before coming to Michigan Tech in 2008. I married
the love of my life, Ron Wade, on June 21, 1986. I am a caregiver for my family, and
I enjoy doing volunteer work. My husband and I love to travel and hope to someday
be “snow birds” (wintering in sunny Florida). I love working with students and enjoy
taking on a “mothering” role. If you need someone to talk to, you can count on me.
