Assistant Director, PreGraduate School and Career Development

(she, her, hers)

As a transdisciplinary educator, I straddle academic and student affairs as both a career advisor in the Career Center and as a lecturer in Global Studies. I particularly enjoy designing and leading our road shows and partnering with students, alumni, employers and the broader community to construct events that extend academics outside of the four walls of the classroom. While I mainly advise students in groups, I do take a few appointments each week.

What do you most enjoy about working at the Career Center?

Connecting students with niche interests to alumni, employers or graduate programs that match and expand their options might be my favorite part of my Career Center work.

Favorite quote, motto or piece of advice?

“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow” Carrie Fisher.
