Bio

I oversee advising and counseling for undergraduates and alumni in Yale College and students in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences interested in pursuing further education in the health and medical fields, and is also a general advisor for STEM fields. A longtime higher education professional, I began my career handling event planning and facilities management at Widener University, where I obtained a B.S. in Business Administration and M.Ed. in Education. Transitioning to advising services at the University of Pennsylvania, I coordinated the peer/faculty advising program for 1,600 first year undergraduates as well as managed special services for first-year students and sophomores, in the College of Arts & Sciences. In 2004, I joined Johns Hopkins University as a PreHealth and PreLaw Advisor, and since 2006 I have worked at Yale University, serving as Director since 2009. Professionally, I am an active member of the National and Northeast Associations for Advisors in the Health Professions, NACADA (The Global Community for Academic Advising), and the National and Eastern Associations of Colleges and Employers.
