I joined the Office of Admissions in summer 2014 after my family moved to upstate New York from New Jersey. I’ve always been drawn to colleges with a strong sense of community and a commitment to student-faculty relationships for undergraduates – two things that really define Union. Our students make the most of the unique opportunities here; they don’t take them for granted.

One of my favorite places to travel outside of work is Williamsburg, Va., where my family has spent many vacations because we all love history, especially American history. To Kill a Mockingbird is my all-time favorite book. And I don’t think that I’ve ever read a memoir that I didn’t like. Learning about people, their part of the world, and the era they grew up in from their own points of view is fascinating. In addition to reading, I like going to the movies and watching baseball.
