What are the specifics of your educational/career background?

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies from Providence College, where I also studied Spanish and Film. Prior to Northeastern, I worked at two nonprofits in Rhode Island. I was the Community Outreach Coordinator at Bike Newport, and I served as an Americorps VISTA at Social Enterprise Greenhouse.

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

In my current role I support students during their co-op search through mock interviews, resume reviewing, and event coordination. I also manage Khoury Undergraduate Co-op communications and assist on curriculum development for the Professional Development for Khoury Co-op course. I love working with students and helping them determine which co-op and path is right for them.

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

I have always been a proponent of hands-on and experiential learning, so the co-op program is incredibly compelling to me. Especially given the global reach of Khoury, students have the opportunity to gain really valuable experience that will help them throughout their life.
