Points of Pride
I am proud to be a part of a leading university and a department that is student-centered and examines all initiatives through the lens of social justice. Regardless of the size of the university, our team fosters the development of a transformative residential life experience where all students – particularly marginalized students – can be successful in their personal and professional pursuits.

Personal Motto: Lift as you climb
Life Outside the U
Outside The U, I simply enjoy making memories with those close to me! As a native New Yorker and former music student, memories could be made by rooting for the New York Yankees, attending a live concert or other performing arts event, traveling to a new place to learn a different culture, crossing an item off my bucket list, being an advocate for select non-profit organizations, or simply binging the latest shows or movies online! Overall, I enjoy learning different perspectives and cultures while continuing to leave my legacy with each individual I meet.
