Born and raised in Western New York, I appreciate the culture, arts and beauty of Buffalo. Being an admissions counselor for the University at Buffalo provides me a wonderful opportunity to help foster and develop the city I hold so close to my heart. I am proud to be a part of a university that has such a local and global impact, and I look forward to furthering its success.

I have a great appreciation for higher education and the college student experience. I just recently graduated with a Master of Science in college student affairs from Buffalo State College, and more than ever I understand the impact college has on an individual. As a student of the University at Buffalo, you will receive more than just a formal education. You’ll have the opportunity to become engaged socially and academically, while obtaining analytical and communication skills to prepare you for a career and a lifetime of learning. 

Beyond my passion for college, I enjoy playing tennis, running and sketching. I live in the Elmwood Village, where you can always find something that interests you; whether it is walking around Albright-Knox Art Gallery, chatting with friends at a coffee shop or dining in one of the neighborhood’s unique restaurants.

I encourage you to visit the University at Buffalo and see for yourself what we have to offer our students and the WNY community. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and best of luck in your college search!
