It has been great to be a part of the Pre-Professional Center staff at the University of Cincinnati after having spent a decade in medical school recruitment, student affairs and alumni relations. This position has allowed me to return to my roots of collaborating with, and providing compassionate and honest advising to, undergraduate students. I look forward to every day working with determined and energetic students, and collaborating with colleagues from across the campus.

I’m enthusiastic about making the move to Academic Advising and working at the Pre-Professional Advising Center with fantastic colleagues and motivated students. I intend to utilize my previous background in student leadership development, enrollment management, academic affairs and alumni affairs to provide support to students and help them succeed in achieving their academic, professional and personal goals. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, trying new restaurants, and doing pilates.
