Program Director, Center for Health Promotion
I started working for Ithaca College CHP in Fall 2021. Before joining the Ithaca College family my previous professional roles were in an Office of Health Promotion at another institution and a non-profit agency for substance use concerns. I have my Master’s in Public Health degree (Boston University) and a BS in Health Science & Exercise Physiology (The College at Brockport, SUNY). I chose my career path in College Health Promotion and Prevention work after my incredible experience as a Peer Educator at Brockport – where we strived to, “make health contagious!”
My professional areas of expertise include sexual health, prosocial bystander intervention, substance use, and interpersonal violence prevention work. Although these are my areas of expertise, I have done work on a variety of additional wellness topics and strive to keep learning! I am passionate about college wellness and working with students and colleagues to weave wellness into the fabric of the campus community.
In personal time I enjoy spending time with my cats, family, and friends, reading, amateur couponing, crafting and board games!
