Biography

I am the Program Coordinator for the Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine Program. My husband and I have been married for over 22 years and raised 2 beautiful children. Our oldest is now grown and living with his family, and our youngest will be completing her last year at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, majoring in Criminal Justice.

My employment at Boston University began in the spring of 1995, within (GMS) the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences. Over the years, I developed a challenging and rewarding career working with the medical school faculty members and departmental chairs assisting graduate students within GMS. In the fall of 2003, I was offered a position in the Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine Program. I have a number of responsibilities including working with the core faculty, graduate students, and managing budgets and work-study students. I also serve as a key liaison to GMS for the program.

As a child, one of my dreams was to someday, become a child psychologist. Although I was never able to complete this dream, I’ve never given up my passion to work in an environment that had a relevant connection to the field of psychology. Today, as the Program Coordinator in the MHCBM program I continue to work directly with the Program Director and the core-faculty members in promoting and structuring a successful program that I am excited to be a part of nurturing.

This year marks my 20th year of service at Boston University and I look forward continue my career within this university.
