Pronouns: she/her/hers

I have been at the Friedman School since 2003 and spent the first five years working as part of a research team on two studies. One was a longitudinal study that evaluated a wide range of health behaviors and outcomes among Tufts undergraduate students. Another focused on elementary school children in after school programs with the goal of improving eating habits and increasing physical activity levels. I then transitioned to the Office of Student Affairs (the result of an informational interview!) and quickly realized how much I enjoyed helping students grow professionally.

As part of the Block Career Services Center team, my goal is to ensure that students have the support that they need as they explore their areas of interest and become better prepared for the job market. My work involves guiding and coaching students as they seek internships and jobs, providing skill building and networking opportunities through workshops and events, and developing relationships with employers and partners. In addition, I help plan and organize new student orientation and commencement, as well as advise student organizations and groups.

I have my Ed.M. from Boston University in Policy, Planning, and Administration with a specialization in Higher Education Administration. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, traveling, music, and baking yummy treats.

Food Fun Fact

I am allergic to cantaloupe, despise blackberries, and, if only allowed to have one food if stranded on a deserted island, it would be vanilla soft serve ice cream. Also, I am originally from Buffalo, New York, the famed birthplace of Buffalo wings and home of the Beef on Weck sandwich. It’s worth the trip!
