I graduated with a BA and majors in Psychology and Communications from Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. For my graduate education, I trained at Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development, earning my EdM in Counseling to specialize in School Counseling. I am licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education as a School Guidance Counselor for Pre-K through 8th grade and 8th grade through 12th grade. I am a strengths-based, student-centered educator dedicated to building comprehensive student support systems and enhancing equity in education.


Within the MHCBM Program, I work as our Senior Program Manager. Here, I wear many hats to ensure that we are on target to meet our strategic goals and collaborate with our graduate student body and faculty on enhancements to the program. I orchestrate recruitment and admissions strategies, design and implement events, manage our financials, and collaborate with University and external stakeholders. The role is a terrific balance of left brain and right brain functions! I also have the privilege of managing an outstanding team of BU undergraduate and graduate student employees who are instrumental in the day-to-day success of our Program.

I joined Boston University in 2010 at the Questrom School of Business, working in both graduate admissions and undergraduate student services. I have had the opportunity to work in various academic advising, career counseling, and admissions capacities. This array of professional experiences has provided me with the skills to integrate best practices into our programming and manage cross-functional teams.  In building upon my past experiences in education and counseling, I value building enthusiasm and community between our students and faculty to create inclusive and enriching experiences for our counseling cohorts.
