(she, her, hers)

As a former theatre kid and camp counselor, I love working in a field where I get to help students and alumni with vast skills and interests find their place in the world of work. I’ve spent time as a career advisor, theatre educator, and consultant. My role focuses on creating connections between employers and students, especially in nonprofit, education, sustainability, healthcare, and government-related fields.

Life is better when you lead with your hopes, not your fears.

First post-college job?

My first job out of college was at the Center for Career Engagement (albeit in a different role)! But before that, I spent every summer working at a summer camp, and it shaped me into the person and professional that I am.
