About Me

I'm a two-time Drexel grad who has been working for the University since the fall of 1997. I worked in the suburbs of Philadelphia when I first graduated, but two years later — the city and University were calling me back.

Place on Campus

Paul Peck Alumni Center. It was originally built as a bank in 1876 by architect Frank Furness.

Restaurant/Food Truck

Close to campus is a place called Cira Green and a small café there called Sunset Social. It's a park that is on the top of a 12-story building by 30th and Chestnut streets. They host special events, and it has amazing views of the city.

Philadelphia Landmark/Location

I'm a huge fan of live music. We are so fortunate to have World Café Live just a few blocks from our campus. They host small-scale concerts by local artists and national groups all year long. Plus, they host a free concert every Friday at noon.
