What are the brief specifics of your educational and career background?

I’ve worked for several universities advising and teaching students on career development and academics. Before coming to Northeastern, I worked in the Boston College Career Center and at Purdue University. With the goal of guiding students through their time in college and coaching them on developing professionally, I completed my MS in higher education after earning my BA in psychology.

What are the key aspects of your role at Northeastern? What do you enjoy most about your job?

I coach students on connecting their skills, interests, values, academics, and goals to their next step. I am an educator and thought partner as students apply and interview for co-ops, strive to make the most of their co-op, and then bring their experience back to the classroom. I work with employers to identify their needs and develop co-op opportunities for students. I also manage and develop projects, resources, and events. Being on a university campus, surrounded by a community of people dedicated to growth, is such a positive place to be! I enjoy supporting and learning from students as they face challenges and thrive.

What’s the most compelling thing to you about the work that goes on at Khoury College?

The research of Khoury College faculty and the work students accomplish in class and on co-op spans subjects and industries that impact us all every day. It’s exciting to be part of a college and field constantly undergoing rapid change and growth. Khoury College has a great team of staff and faculty dedicated to finding creative and new ways to encourage students to pursue their professional goals.
