About Me

After attending college in Baltimore and studying abroad for six months, I realized there's no place like home and returned to the City of Brotherly Love. I love working with students and helping them find the right-fit college. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling near and far (so far, I've been to 20 countries and 30 states), and am a huge fan of theme parks, Marvel movies, and all things Disney.

What advice would you give to a high school student applying to college?

Think about what is important to you, and what you want and need in a college. Academics are key, but college is also about all the things outside of the classroom too: clubs and athletics, residential life, study abroad, and so much more. Look for schools that fit your passions, interests, and future goals. Don't be afraid to ask for help or for advice from your friends, family, teachers, and counselors, but remember that this is your life and your college experience. The colleges you apply to should be a good fit for you!


Place on Campus:

Definitely Main Building — as a former history major, I feel lucky that I get to work in a building filled with so much tradition and history.

Restaurant/Food Truck:

Shake Shack — you can't go wrong with a burger, fries, and a milkshake!

Philadelphia Landmark/Location:

I love the city at Christmas time! I loved going into the city as a child to see the Dickens Village and the Wanamaker Light Show at Macy's, and seeing them now brings back warm memories.
