Get your “house” in order to start the new year off on the right foot as we welcome Roger Mancanstroppa, Associate Director, University of Richmond Academic Skills Center. That’s his “day” job, working with students.  

He also enjoys spending time working with adults to help cut through the clutter of life and spend time on what’s most important to make the most impact with the little time we have.  Mancastroppa practices mindfulness as a way to deal with the stress of the workplace and life.

He is in his fourth year as the Associate Director for Academic Skills at the University of Richmond where he assists students individually and collectively with academic skill development. You can read his official UR bio here.
