She focuses on driving efforts to build unique engagements that enable our students to accomplish their professional goals and our employer-partners to fulfill their strategic talent acquisition and workforce solutions.

She previously served as dean of students and associate vice president of student affairs at Simmons University and has also held leadership roles at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Boston, Wheelock College, Cambridge College, and Emerson College. She has taught courses on historic and present-day college student activist movements, leadership development, and adult development.
