Professional profile:
Originally from Everett, Washington, I migrated to New Jersey to escape the rain and pursue my bachelor’s degree at Seton Hall University. After serving for four years as a resident assistant, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in higher education, and I accepted a job in campus activities at St. John’s University in Queens, NY. There, I received my M.S.Ed. in student development practice for higher education. After a year at Stony Brook University and a total of ten years between New York and New Jersey, I returned to the northwest after being offered a residence director position here at Saint Martin's. I am now serving Saint Martin's residents as the director of housing and residence life.
