I joined Union in the summer of 2019 as a graduate of a small liberal arts college, so I already knew and appreciated the value of a residential liberal arts and sciences education. The close-knit campus community at Union, though, is really unique. I’ve felt supported, celebrated and welcomed from my first day here.

I’m impressed, inspired and humbled by our students’ academic, personal and professional achievements every day – I have the pleasure of working with several of them here in the admissions office. I’m always excited to talk to prospective students about their interests, hobbies and ever-evolving dreams and then see the directions they go in after they get to Union.

In my free time, I like to watch true crime, investigative, and scientific documentaries with my mischievous cat. I also enjoy reading books and conducting independent historical and sociological research through my local library. In the fall and winter I can be spotted at Union hockey games while in the summer I love spending time at various local museums, ice cream joints, and parks.
