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

I received a BS in Business Administration and Management and M.Ed in Counseling Psychology from Boston University.  I began my career in Human Resources, but found I wanted to work with students so I moved into higher education.  Before coming to Northeastern, I worked at the Education Resource Center at Boston University.  I started working at Khoury College in 2017 as an Academic Advisor and became an Assistant Coop Coordinator in 2019.

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

I support students throughout their co-op process and teach the Professional Development for Co-op course.  I work with our co-op employer partners to help them create a talent pipeline and strengthen their co-op programs.  As the computer science industry continues to grow, I also cultivate relationships with dynamic companies to create new co-op opportunities. My favorite part of my role is helping students find positions that are a good fit for them and seeing the value they add for their co-op employers.

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

Technology is continually changing how we live and work, so I am very excited to work with the current and future innovators of the computer science field. Khoury students are very passionate and driven, and I am continually impressed by their accomplishments in the classroom and on their co-ops.
