Coach Tina passed away on June 7, 2019. She was a valued member of the Academic Coaching team since its inception. Tina’s friends remembered her, saying that she had “a unique way of approaching life and always did it her way.” She brought her passion for individuality and living life to the fullest to her students at ACC, affecting the lives of many for good. She also brought joy and much needed insight to her coworkers. She will be sadly missed by us all.
Rest in peace, Tina
