A proud Jersey girl who grew up in NY, I earned my Bachelor of Science in History with a minor in Women & Gender Studies from SUNY Brockport before completing my Master of Science in Higher Education at Syracuse University. Looking to get away from Syracuse winters, I applied sight unseen to UNC Asheville and have been here ever since.

My original role in the Career Center was Student Engagement Coordinator, where I focused on event planning, marketing, and supervising our incredible student staff. I'm excited to be in a new role - Assistant Director of Experiential Learning - where I hope to help make out-of-classroom experiences (student employment, internships, etc.) even more impactful for students. I meet with students 1on1 as well to discuss everything from major exploration to resume improvement. Outside of work, I can be found cuddling my cats while reading or listening to my husband explain Premiere League soccer.
