I have worked for New York State since 1989 and came to the University in February 1996. That is when I started here in the Academic Advising Center. I was the Staff Assistant for the Center. In June of 2001 I began working full time in the Orientation and Family Programs Office as the Office Manager. I also teach the First-Year Seminar, serve as a mentor in the Mentor Program, and am an advisor for the Golden Key International Honor Society.

A proud Stony Brook alum, I attended SBU as an international undergraduate student and earned my BA in Psychology with a minor in International Studies and continued at SBU to obtain my MA in Public Policy.

I have had the pleasure of working with the Student Orientation & Family Programs Office in various capacities since 2007, and I am truly excited to join the office in this role.
