I am a former Senior Assistant Director at New York University’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions where I served as the Team Leader for the Stern School of Business’s undergraduate admissions team. I have reviewed thousands of college applications from students across the United States and around the world. While at New York University, I also coordinated the admissions process for Spring in New York, a program for visiting domestic and international students.

I completed my Educational Policy and Leadership at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My dissertation research focused on helping students develop interpersonal and intercultural communication skills through meaningful dialogue across difference. I also earned degrees at New York University and the University of Michigan. I have taught college courses for eight years and I am passionate about supporting students in achieving their life goals, thriving inside and outside of the classroom, and making positive changes in their communities.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and distance running. I have finished the New York City Marathon three times.
