I have spent my life living and working in New York State, but the west coast seems to suit me well. I most recently worked in residence life at Syracuse University where I earned my Master's Degree in Higher Education. I had a fantastic undergraduate college experience at the State University of New York at New Paltz where I majored in Interpersonal/Intercultural Communication with a minor in Disaster Studies. My undergraduate career, both in and out of the classroom, gave me a great foundation for my professional endeavors. I have loved working in housing and residence life because of the unique opportunity to connect with residents in their community space. I enjoy student leadership and am passionate about mentoring studnets who are interested in pursuing student affairs as a career.
Outside of the job, I am an avid traveler and am always looking for a new adventure. I've got lots of stamps in my passport: ask me where I've been! I also like to relax by grabbing my canon camera and walking around the city, finding a good cup of tea, and enjoying unique restaurants. I am incredibly excited to be part of the team here at PSU and work in a totally new environment.
