I served as an Assistant Director of Admissions at Dartmouth College, where I studied International Relations and Education Policy as an undergraduate. I am currently an MBA and MPA dual-degree candidate at MIT Sloan School of Management and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

I have worked with applicants from around the globe, my most memorable experiences have been working with students from across Africa, where I lived and worked for five years. I have taught primary school, trained teachers, and established creativity and community programs in low-resource regions. Having worked closely with hundreds of students from every background imaginable, I am always so proud of these young people when they earn admission to the school that is perfect for them. I love hearing from my past students throughout their college experiences and beyond.

When I'm not thinking about college admissions, I enjoy TED talks, comedy shows, playing with education technology, and having conversations with new people I meet around Boston.
