Elaine Marieb College of Nursing Student Support Center


The Elaine Marieb College of Nursing Student Support Center functions by creating a place where students can go and know that any staff person can assist in their academic success. The Center is located at UMass Amherst on the ground floor of Skinner Hall, or with the assistance of Dee Jones in the UMass Springfield Center.

The Support Center team is made up of:

Karen Ayotte – Team Leader, DNP Program Specialist

Reggie Lamothe – Academic Advisor, Amherst/Springfield

Liz Theroux – Traditional Undergraduate & RN/BS Program Specialist

Cynthia Mendoza – PhD and Master’s Programs Specialist

Dee Jones – Accelerated Bachelor’s Degree Program Specialist, Springfield

Andrea Juno (AJ) – Clinical Contracts Specialist & External Affairs

Jennifer Heim – CastleBranch Student Credentialing Specialist

Any member of the Team can assist students and direct them to the right resources.  The Team is looking to provide new and innovative ways to assist students. We welcome students' recommendations and ideas!  Look for the suggestion boxes posted both in Springfield and Amherst.
