Director of Recruitment & Employment

Welcome! Since May of 2002, I have been supporting campus departments to actively recruit prospective employees by planning and participating in outreach activities and programs and developing and coordinating advertising specifically designed to market and promote Ithaca College’s employment opportunities.   Whether you are looking to fill a position in your area here at IC or if you are interested in joining our team, please visit our website at www.ithaca.edu/hr/recruitment

I am a graduate of State University of New York at Binghamton and have since earned the certification of Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR). Before coming to IC, I spent several years working in recruitment and college relations for a Fortune 500 company.   

Born and raised in Watkins Glen just 25 miles west of Ithaca, I’m a native of upstate New York and now reside in Burdett (located just east of Watkins Glen) with my husband and three daughters. The Finger Lakes region of New York State provides a diverse and culturally vibrant setting full of natural beauty. We couldn’t think of a more perfect place to raise our family! To see what the area might have to offer you, check out the following links: www.fingerlakes.comwww.fingerlakes.org, www.tompkinschamber.org, www.visitithaca.com.
