Hailing from Westbury, Long Island, I earned a B.A. in Psychology at Stony Brook University and an M.A. in Psychology in Education at Teachers College. My journey in admission began as a student worker, and led me to my current position, Director of Recruitment. I am proud to be a member of such a vibrant and caring community at TC. We have visionary faculty and an incredibly talented student body who are committed to creating a more just and equitable world. Outside of work, I am an avid tennis fan, a cupcake and Disney enthusiast, an accomplished subway surfer, and I aim to have at least one meal a week involving buffalo chicken.
I first began my exciting journey at TC over a decade ago as an M.A. student in the Higher & Postsecondary Education program. Originally from Poughkeepsie, NY, I came to TC shortly after completing my undergraduate studies at Siena College, where I studied Psychology, and more importantly, realized my passion for working in higher education! Engaging with students on and off campus, counseling applicants through the admission and enrollment processes, and hearing how TC students hope to change the world inspires me on a daily basis. While in pursuit of my own graduate degree at the College, I was fortunate enough to acquire a graduate assistantship within the Office of Financial Aid, which helped to shape my professional career within Enrollment Management. I ultimately worked in the field of financial aid for several years before making the transition into TC's Office of Admission. I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to contribute to the TC community as a member of the amazing Office of Admission team and as an alum! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, staying active at the gym and through fitness classes, running, traveling, and watching a variety of different sports.
Born and raised right here in Manhattan, with a public school teacher for a mother, I knew from an early age what makes TC a special place. I studied Anthropology for my bachelor's at SUNY Binghamton and continued on to earn a master's in Museum Studies during my graduate career in Philadelphia. I was able to translate what I learned in a meaningful way for my position as the director of Information Management at a medical school recruiting company, where I was a team member for a decade. I am now proud to be a member of the TC community. Responsible for all the operations in the Office of Admission, I look forward to finding ways to streamline the student journey and backend processes that allow moving through the application process to be as seamless as possible for applicants and staff alike. In my personal time, I enjoy baking (and taste-testing!) goodies with my two young boys and watching bad (but oh-so-good) sci-fi movies with my husband.
Originally from Syracuse, NY, my passion for student services was sparked during my time as an undergraduate student at the University of Virginia. Through my work in Residence Life at UVA, I closely guided hundreds of students in navigating their first year of college, and I found it to be incredibly rewarding. After earning my Bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in Drama, I initially pursued other passions of mine by working in a law firm and performing in theater productions across the country for several years. Eventually, however, I began to crave the unmatchable energy of a university campus, and I was fortunate enough to find my home at TC! Ten years (and one TC Master’s degree in Higher Education!) later, I am still in constant awe of our vibrant community members who strive to make meaningful change in the fields of education, mental health, nutrition, and many more. I find so much joy and inspiration in connecting with our prospective students, and truly feel honored to be a part of their path. When I'm not counseling students, I can be found writing children's stories, practicing the ukulele, scouting out New York City's best mac n' cheese, and voicing cartoons—my favorite being an 8-year-old superhero named Rocket Girl.
My introduction to working in admissions came during my undergraduate years at Emory University, where I served as a student ambassador. Having worked in various leadership positions at Teachers College for close to two decades, I continue my ambassador role as an Assistant Director in a unique position working remotely from Las Vegas, Nevada. With a master’s degree from the University of Chicago and Teachers College’s Psychology in Education program, I’m happy to provide insight about the graduate school experience and share my TC experience with those of you hailing from the West Coast. I look forward to assisting you with your own graduate school journey.
Originally from northern Virginia, I had the privilege of growing up around the world in countries including South Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, and Poland. I’m excited to be working at an institution and serving a community that is driven by diversity and inclusion. My higher education journey began when I received my bachelor’s in International Business and minor in History at the George Washington University. My involvement as a student leader on campus inspired my passion for enhancing the college student experience, which led me to Teachers College. After receiving my master’s in the Higher and Postsecondary Education program and an advanced certificate in College Advising from TC, I am thrilled to be back at my alma mater! Throughout my career, I have worked in student affairs, orientation, student conduct, and diversity, equity & inclusion. Outside of work, I’m a huge Marvel geek, I have the most adorable Shiba Inu, and I can often be found enjoying a concert in the city!
Born and raised in a family of two teachers in the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, I developed my passion for international education early. I began my journey of volunteering and working in education while teaching in the American Corner of Kaliningrad, where I was a co-founder. Later, I worked with international students in Moscow, Krakow, Idaho, and Maryland. My experience and passion led me to New York— and Teachers College, the top graduate school of education in the U.S. I want to make the admission experience enjoyable and smooth for students — since I was a student in two of the busiest cities in the world, can relate to them. I received my bachelor’s degree from Hunter College in New York and am currently finishing my master’s degree in TESOL. My goal is to contribute my best to the Office of Admission and make a meaningful impact on our dynamic operations processes. Outside the office, you can find me watching crime documentaries, traveling, trying different cuisines and knitting.
Born and raised in New Britain, CT, I developed a passion for education through involvement in public schools and community activities. From teaching dance classes to facilitating outdoor games at summer camp, working in education has consistently been a pivotal pillar in my life. I began my higher education journey at Ithaca College, where I pursued an interdisciplinary degree in Arts Education and discovered my love for student services as a tour guide. After graduating during the beginning of the pandemic, I shifted gears and spent two years in AmeriCorps service as a tutor for middle and high school students. Now at TC, I am thrilled to be using the knowledge I gained as an educator to contribute to the Office of Admission and interact with our community's incredible changemakers. Outside the office, you can find me reading, writing, and practicing yoga in the haven of NYC’s beautiful parks, or cuddling with my adorable orange tabby, Toby.
Originally from the California Bay Area, I began working in admissions in high school and continued finding opportunities to assist others in their educational journeys during my college years while studying mathematics education at High Point University. Before TC, I spent two years as a Peace Corps Ghana education volunteer, teaching math and English reading literacy to middle school students. This experience allowed me to obtain my Masters degree in International Education Management from Middlebury Institute of International Studies, where I served on the Student Council as Social Activities Coordinator and as Peace Corps Club President. I am excited to continue serving students here at TC and see their educational goals be achieved. Outside of the office, I am most likely exploring the Theater District, planning my next trip, or re-learning a language.
