Professional/Personal Biography: I started my educational journey in my hometown where I graduated from Cayuga Community College with an Associate’s degree in Mass Media. I transferred to SUNY Plattsburgh and two years later I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication: Mass Media. In 2008, I graduated with my Master’s degree in Administration and Leadership, and began my professional tenure with the college soon thereafter.  For the past six years, I have been honored to work as a freshman admissions advisor in the undergraduate admissions office.  I truly love this University as well as the surrounding region!

Most Memorable College Experience: My most memorable college experience was meeting people from all over the world and developing life long friendships along the way.

Favorite SUNY Plattsburgh Activity: Without even thinking, it’s attending our cardinal sporting events.  You truly feel the camaraderie and school pride when you attend a game.  You just have to experience it for yourself!

Best Advice: “Every morning you are handed twenty-four golden hours.  They are some of the few things in this world that you get free of charge.  If you had all the money in the world, you couldn’t buy an extra hour.  What will you do with this priceless treasure?” - Author Unknown
