Biography:
I am originally from New York where I lived in various parts of the state and even lived in Rhode Island for a short time before I moved to New Jersey. I joined Monmouth University in August 2006 working in Residential Life, Student Employment and now the Educational Opportunity Fund program. I have a strong passion for working with college students and helping them grow to follow their dreams. As a first generation college student my goal is to help ease the transition into college and assist others in navigating campus life. In my free time I can usually be found hanging out with my 3 children, husband and golden retriever at the park or on the boardwalk. My hobbies include watching the NY Rangers, fishing, and spending time with family and friends.

Education:
Bachelor of Arts in Communication, Journalism/Public Relations cluster – Monmouth University 2014
Master of Arts Public Policy – Monmouth University 2016

Biography:
I was raised in south Jersey and I moved to West Long Branch in 2010 after being selected for the EOF program at Monmouth University. I am a two-time MU graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Communication concentrated in Journalism/Public Relations, and a master’s degree in Public Policy focused in welfare policy. After graduation, I worked at a transitional housing program for homeless families in Monmouth County as the Assistant Program Coordinator, before rejoining the MU EOF program in February 2020 as a Counselor. In my free time I enjoy hiking, horticulture and reading. I understand the unique barriers our students face, and I plan to create an environment that will allow them to overcome their challenges and become successful MU graduates.
