Bio: Hi there! I was born and raised in the small coastal town of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey. I attended Montclair State University with the intention of being a forensic psychologist, child services worker, social worker, and a gerontologist (yes, I know, I was all over the place)!

While trying to discover what my future career would be, I spent a lot of time outside of the classroom getting involved with different campus departments and activities. The majority of my time was spent with the Office of Residence Life where I served as a Resident Assistant for two years before being promoted to a Resident Assistant Coordinator for my senior year. I also got involved with the Student Government Association, Student Leadership Office, and the Student Programming Board. These opportunities offered me the chance to grow as a leader while giving back to the campus community. During my junior year, the lightbulb went off, and I realized my future career path had been in front me the whole time! I decided that I wanted to help future college students develop asleaders and people outside of the classroom, thus my passion for Student Affairs was born.

If you see me with headphones in, I am most likely listening to hits of the late 90’s-early 2000’s. I love history and find it so fascinating! On Thursday nights, you will find me watching Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, #TGIT! I am always down for getting a cup of coffee and listening to a good story.

I am so ecstatic to be able to join the UConn HESA Family, and I look forward to all of the great opportunities to come!
