In 2012 I earned my BA in Computer Science from Drew University.  After spending four years in New Jersey, I returned to my home state of California and began working in higher education at Mt. San Jacinto College as an Academic Advisor for the Trio Upward Bound Program.  In 2015 I earned my MA in Higher Education at the University of Redlands. I am currently the Resident Director of East Hall with a collateral assignment as the Coordinator of Greek Life.  One of my key interests is leadership development and helping students to get involved on campus.

I can be found in the depths of Holt with an office at Holt 100 and an apartment not ten feet away. Working closely with the Johnston Center for Integrative studies and an alumnus of the program (c/o 2012) I work to make the Johnston experience a grand one. Starting this year I will also be working with Jared Rodrigues and Kim Myers on campus alcohol and drug abuse and prevention initiatives. I can't wait to get this year started!

I recently moved to California from the East Coast. I grew up in Massachusetts (Go Red Sox) and recently spent two years in Virginia, at James Madison University, where I received my M.ED in College Student Personnel Administration. I love to travel, do CrossFit, and spend time outside! I am super excited to be a part of the Redlands Community and to start the new year!
