About Me: I joined the Marywood Admissions staff in December 2012. I attended Marywood for both my undergraduate and graduate programs. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Business in 2010, and my Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration in 2012. I am originally from Endicott, New York, but currently reside in Scranton, Pa.
My Interests: I’m a sports junkie! I love playing sports and watching sports, especially soccer, which I played and coached at Marywood. I also love basketball and football. I spend my free time with my wife, family, and friends. I enjoy running at Lake Scranton and working out at Marywood's Center for Athletics and Wellness.
My Favorite Thing about Marywood: I love the sense of community at Marywood – it feels like one big family! We have so many great events all throughout the year and it is wonderful to see the students, faculty, and staff all come together. Marywood also has many beautiful, new facilities.
My Favorite Place on Campus: I love the Center for Athletics and Wellness because of the modern weight room, indoor track, and basketball arena. I also enjoy spending time in the Nazareth Student Center. Starbucks coffee, the bookstore, and the newly renovated dining hall make Naz a great place to be!
You’d Never Guess: I am the first generation in my family to be born in the United States. Both of my parents were born in Italy, and my maternal grandparents still live in Pofi, Italy with my great grandmother!
My Best Advice: My advice to prospective graduate students is to have an open communication flow with the admissions staff and faculty members. Be aware of program deadlines, per-requisite courses you must complete, and exactly what materials you are required to submit. Graduate admissions can get tricky because each department is looking for something a little bit different!
