Linda Sirois 

I grew up all over, as I was an Air Force brat. Some places I lived: Kansas, Texas, Louisiana, Ohio, and Turkey. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Writing and a Master's in Creative Writing here at Northern. I’ve taught English classes here for six years and I've worked as the Academic Coordinator/Advisor in Student Support Services for four years before becoming the Director. I love working with students to help them to identify what they want to do as a career, and that begins with the class selection and figuring out their major.

Principal Secretary

I was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula and graduated from NMU in 2016 with a Bachelor's degree in Legal Studies. I am excited to be working for Student Support Services. I thoroughly enjoy interacting with our students on a day-to-day basis and I strive to make each student's experience with our office a good one.

Program Counselor

I was born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan.  I earned my Bachelor's degree from NMU in 2012, and my Master's in Counseling from the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater in 2015. As a professional, I have worked in Higher Ed for four years, but I was an R.A. for four years so if you count that then I have worked in Higher Ed for eight years! I love it! As a counselor, I love helping people overcome challenges and discover success and happiness for themselves.
