B.A., Economics | Minor in Business Analytics | Ithaca College, 2021

I grew up in Westchester County, NY in a small town called Croton-on-Hudson. I moved to Ithaca in 2018 to attend IC. I began my college career in the Exploratory Program before officially declaring Economics as my major. During my time as an undergraduate student, I was heavily involved with ICTV as a comedy writer for “After Hours,” Students Today Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) as the Vice President of Spirit Week, and the Office of Admission as a tour guide and Co-Chair of the Admission Host committee.

It was my job as a student ambassador for the Office of Admission that developed my passion for higher education. Upon my graduation in December 2021, I started my full-time role as an Admission Counselor. I am so grateful to continue to call Ithaca and campus my communities. I am so excited to work with prospective students and their supporters to build the future classes of amazing IC students.

When I’m not in Peggy Ryan Williams Center, you can likely find me watching Jeopardy, eating a good bagel with cream cheese, and checking things off of my Ithaca Adventures bucket list.
