Hello Rams! I am eager to work with you, and help you along your journey to earning a degree here at URI. I earned my BS in Business Administration from the University of Miami with a concentration in Management. Following college, I worked in the professional tennis industry helping promote and manage professional tennis events all around the world. Through my work I had the opportunity to travel a great deal, and work with people from all backgrounds.

My found memories of working with students at the University of Miami led me to higher education. I earned my MS in Higher Education in Student Affairs from Salem State University. Before coming to URI, I worked at Bryant University, Salem State University, Bentley University, and the University of Miami advising and mentoring a wide range of students. I love helping students achieve their academic and personal goals, while assisting them in their own developmental and personal growth. If there is anything I hope for my students it is that they fail, learn, and grow stronger.

Outside of work, I love to keep active (tennis, biking, skiing), going on trips, visiting new restaurants, and hitting the beach or the mountains. I am also a die-hard television and movie fan (favorites include live sports and reality television).
