About Me

I'm a two-time Drexel grad who has been working for the University for the past 19 years. I worked in the suburbs of Philadelphia when I first graduated, but two years later the city and University were calling me back.

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

Place on Campus:
Paul Peck Alumni Center. It was originally built as a bank in 1876 by architect Frank Furness.
Restaurant/Food Truck:
CoZara, really amazing Japanese food!
Philadelphia Landmark/Location:
One of the things I really love about Philadelphia is the unique independent stores and boutiques. My favorite, Smak Parlour in the Old City section of Philadelphia, is owned by two Drexel grads. It's always my go-to place to find the perfect dress that no one else will have.
