Assistant Director

The opportunity to work with Honors College students is tremendous. I am energized by hearing about their passion for learning as well as the multitude of opportunities they take advantage of while studying at UB. In addition to advising incoming and current Honors students, I also work with prospective students and families as they decide whether UB Honors would be the best fit for them.

I grew up in the Mid-Hudson Valley, outside of Poughkeepsie, New York, and came to the University at Buffalo as an Honors student, majoring in English. I had an amazing experience as an Honors student. I loved my seminars, had the opportunity to interact closely with faculty (including meals at professors’ houses), studied abroad in Africa and did undergraduate research in comparative literature. I was never sure what I wanted to do after graduation but I always loved education and working closely with students so I decided to get my Master’s degree in School Counseling.

Before joining the Honors College family as a staff member, I spent almost five years working at UB in the Career Services office where I counseled students, managed events and assisted employers interested in hiring our talented UB students.

When I’m not at work I love spending time with family and friends, running, cross-country skiing and biking. Service in the community is very important to me; I'm a member of the Junior League of Buffalo and volunteer with Just Buffalo Literary Center. I'm a huge fan of reading, traveling and cheering on the Buffalo Bills (when you can) at each home game with my season tickets.
