What I enjoy most about working with students:
Supporting them in what they love to do – I have attended concerts, plays, robotics competitions, recitals, and sports of all kinds over the years to connect with my students and watch them shine. Last year, I learned that lacrosse may look very scary the first time you watch as a spectator, but it is very exciting!
My hometown:Waltham, Massachusetts
First job out of college:
Teaching fourth grade in Elkridge, Maryland.
Lowest grade I got as an undergrad:
C in Anthropology freshman year. I took the midterm and final exams and got A’s but half my grade was an F for a paper I didn’t know had been assigned until I saw the zero in the grade book. The moral of the story: don’t skip those early Friday morning recitations – important stuff is discussed!
If I didn’t work for Advising I would:
Write theater reviews.
Bucket list item:
A summer exploring Europe with my kids.
