Bio:  I am a recent graduate of Monmouth University with a Master’s degree in Student Affairs and College Counseling. My studies focused on low SES and at risk student populations. While in grad school, I worked at the New Jersey Institute of Technology as a Career Coach in their Career Development Services office. I earned my Bachelor’s degree at Franklin and Marshall College, where I studied Theater. My goal at Centenary is to reduce the stress of job searching by coaching, counseling, and training students so they have the tools they need to succeed.

Bio: I am a 2018 graduate of Centenary’s business program, and became interested in service work after participating in community service during my time as a student, and interning with a non-profit while in school. I want every Centenary student to have the same opportunities I had to grow professionally through serving. In my role at Centenary I use my experience and passion to inspire youth towards volunteerism, creating pathways between Centenary and the local community that will result sustainability for all. When I am not working or volunteering, I enjoy running, backpacking and all things outside!
