As the Administrative Assistant of the Office of Student Engagement, I provide financial support to the staff and I provide assistance in coordinating office programs and activities.
Additionally, I serve as the hiring manager and assist with the training and supervision of our team of Student Leadership Consultants. Working with the SLCs, each day, is my favorite part of my job! Another major part of my role includes overseeing all campus wide solicitation and I am a community administrator for IC Engage.
I, currently, serve on Staff Council, as a representative for Student Affairs and Campus Life and serve on the Employee Engagement Committee. I am, also, a member of the JED Campus Initiative, and co-chair the Student Engagement and Outreach subcommittee. One of the most fun committees that I serve on, at Ithaca College, is the the Parking and Traffic Appeals and Policy Committee.
I am the mom to three wonderful kids and I grew up right here in Tompkins County, in Newfield, and the Ithaca area has always been my home. I graduated, in 2008, from SUNY Cortland with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. My internship was at the Jacobus Center for Reproductive Health, where I was a sexual health educator for local schools and a mentor for the ZAP program, which was a peer educator group, focused on reducing teen pregnancy. While my husband served in the United States Marine Corps, I was fortunate to hold a job as a Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist in North Carolina. My experiences in these roles made me realize my love of working with students, no matter the context.
I have been at Ithaca College since 2015 and I love working at Ithaca College. I really enjoy working with all of the students that I get to interact with each year. It really is a special place!
