Hometown: Broomall, PA

Education: B.A. in Communication Studies, Widener University; M.Ed. in Student Personnel Services and Counseling, Widener University.

Fun Facts: I enjoy all things movies and am even a member of a fantasy movie league, which operates very similarly to fantasy football. The more “my” movies earn at the box office, the higher my score and chance of winning the league!  I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends and vacationing at the Jersey Shore each summer, where close relatives own properties in Margate and Longport.

Quick Bio:  A native of Delaware County and a higher education enthusiast and practitioner since 2002, I chose to work as an academic advisor because I enjoy helping others and have always had a passion for working with students of all ages.  In my previous position, I served as recruitment and outreach coordinator for an adult continuing education division.  I am particularly happy to work with undecided students, because while pursuing my undergraduate degree in communication studies, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to be when I grew up!  Upon working at my alma mater after graduation, I found my calling in higher education, and I am thrilled to be working in the Office of Academic Advisement at Immaculata University.  Having earned a master’s degree in student personnel services and counseling, I like to put theory into practice, which means I put students first and treat them with the utmost care and respect.  My philosophy is this:  Be to others kind and true, as you would have them be to you.
