About Me

I am originally from Baltimore and have lived all over the east coast, but I am very happy to call Philly home now. I have worked in the field of admissions for several years, and I have a particular love of working with international applicants. Outside of work, you can find me running, practicing yoga, or walking my French Bulldog, Godzilla.

What advice would you give to a student considering grad school?

Connect with current students or alumni from the program you're interested in. Use social media groups to find students, or ask your admission counselor to connect you. This is the very best way to learn about what your experience may be like.


Place on Campus:
The academic quad. It's a great place to sit outside on a nice day.
Restaurant/Food Truck:
Pita Chip - I recommend the falafel and baklava!
Philadelphia Landmark/Location:
It's hard to pick just one! I love the Schuylkill River Trail, Race & Cherry Street Piers, and the Italian Market area.
