About Me

Hometown

Geneva, NY

Professional Experience

I have come to The College of Saint Rose after 16 years of experience in admissions. I am currently enrolled in The College of Saint Rose’s graduate program in Higher Education Leadership. I have held a variety of roles in admissions, but my favorite part of my job is to meet prospective families and help them navigate the process.

College

Siena College

College Major

History with a minor in Political Science

Favorite Sports Team

Buffalo Bills (But I’ve adopted my husbands Chicago Bears over the years).

Favorite Food

French Fries.

Favorite Albany Restaurant

Like everything, it depends…I’m a Gateway breakfast fan, Fountain Pizza fan, a Juniors Salad fan, Lombardo’s or Sam’s for Italian, El Mariachi for Mexican, and The Point for the Hanger Steak and Risotto.

Favorite Capital Region Event

My husband and I host a chili party to kick off the holiday season in early December – this year was the 10th annual. But seriously, Art on Lark in June and the Madison Street Fair in September. The Madison Street Fair is walkable from campus.

Hobbies/Interests

Gardening, traveling, volunteering and hanging out with my family. One of my goals is to see all 50 states.

Why do you work at Saint Rose?

The people and its purpose. Saint Rose is a progressive institution that understands its mission and purpose for the students. It is exciting to feel the vibe on campus!
