With over twenty-five years of student enrollment experience, I am dedicated to supporting a student-centered approach and engaging audiences in forming authentic connections to our living-learning residential community. I do this by leading a talented team who offer professional service and creative solutions as we work with each student to support an informed college search process. During my tenure at IC, I've served as an active mentor for our Martin Luther King Scholar Program and am an advisor for student organizations such as the Caribbean Students’ Association. For these efforts and more, I received the Ithaca College Student Government Council Administrator of the Year award in 2016.
I have been a member of college-wide committees including the President’s Advisory Council on Innovation, the Council on Diversity and Inclusion, and co-chaired the Ithaca College Middle States Self-Study Design & Delivery of Student Learning Experience Committee. My commitment to relationship building has extended beyond my roles on campus as I have devoted time and service in the greater Ithaca community as well. I have served on the board of directors for organizations such as the Community Foundation of Tompkins County, the Sciencenter, Southside Community Center, and the Tompkins County Youth Services Department.
I’ve enjoyed living in and raising my family in this dynamic college town. A spouse, a parent, a grandparent, and hobby genealogist – I have a passion for cooking, and spending time with family.
