Title

Assistant Director of Admission, International Recruitment

Background

Prior to my arrival at Ursinus in August of 2016, I worked in the Admissions office for my alma mater for three years. I’m originally from Buffalo, NY and wanted a different experience for college. I knew I wanted the small, private, liberal arts setting for my undergraduate experience without the snow and cold of my hometown. During my time at Roanoke College as a student, I was actively involved in all aspects of student life. I was a resident advisor, tour guide, student assistant and intern in the admissions office, president of campus activities board, and I held an executive position in my sorority and participated in intramural sports.

With my involvement outside the classroom, starting a career in higher education once I graduated was a natural fit. Having a liberal arts degree has provided me with a strong transferable skill set that has proven to help me excel in the real world. I am thrilled to have found a wonderful environment at Ursinus that truly provides a diverse set of opportunities for students to learn and engage both in and out of the classroom while allowing an individualized approach to their education. I am a firm believer in all that a liberal arts education can offer students! My favorite part of this job is getting to help a student discover what they are looking for in a college experience and helping them find the “perfect fit”.
