Academic path: Prior to starting at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) as a Senior Academic Advisor, I was the Coordinator of the Student Success Coaching Program, a student success initiative.

From 2018-2020, I worked as an academic counselor and project director for Student Support Services (a TRiO program) at Medaille University (then Medaille College).

Hobbies and interests: I am a die-hard Harry Potter fan and a member of the Slytherin House. I prefer listening to audio books instead of the radio while driving, and riding on the back of my husband’s motorcycle while out exploring Western New York. I also love food, but would much rather eat it than cook it.
