Tip for the college search:

On its surface, the college search process can seem daunting. I encourage students to fully engage with and enjoy the journey. By starting early and breaking the process down into manageable pieces students are able to set themselves up for success.

Ursinus is a great place for:



Originally from Maine, I moved to Boston after graduating from my alma mater, Colby College, in 2011. After working in higher education for several years, I arrived at Ursinus in August of 2017.  I was drawn to the College’s academic philosophy, commitment to the student experience, and unwavering desire to better the world around it.  I am a firm believer in the power of a liberal arts education to prepare students for success in an ever-changing world, and I align closely with the mission of the Colleges That Change Lives.
