About me

Michelle OvertoomHello Students!

I'm looking forward to working with you through your academic career here in CFANS! Prior to advising, I received my B.A. in Psychology and my M.S. in Education. My higher education experience has been varied, including residence life, career services, financial aid, student activities, and transfer advising and admissions.

When I'm not working, I love to travel (recent destinations include Argentina, Vietnam, and Italy), go for a run (I'm a two-time marathon finisher), and explore the restaurant scene in the Twin Cities.

I am happy to talk to you about any of the majors for which I advise or other advising issues/questions you may have.

We are committed to providing a comfortable, inclusive, and respectful environment for all members of our communities.
