I'm a native South Jerseyian and Delaware transplant who is thrilled to be part of the Associate in Arts Program team! I received my B.A. in Psychology from Rutgers University – New Brunswick in 2014 and my M.Ed. in Higher Education & Student Affairs from the University of South Carolina in 2016. I decided to pursue my career after mentors in college taught me that anyone, no matter their personality type, life experience or identity, can be a leader and positively impact others.
Before becoming an academic advisor with the AAP, I worked as a career advisor at Rowan College South Jersey (formerly Rowan College at Gloucester County) until July 2019. Prior to this, I worked in the University of South Carolina's Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, primarily with LGBTQ+ programming and advocacy. I am also currently a crisis counselor with Crisis Text Line.
In my downtime, you can probably find me with my fiancé, Adam, our chihuahua and/or our nephew. I also love traveling, listening to podcasts and eating.
Empowering students to discover their unique purpose and explore their passion is what I love the most, and I'm thrilled to help you through that journey. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (302) 831-2805. (Preferred pronouns: she/her).
