About me: I joined the Graduate Admissions staff in 2013, but began my career in higher education in 2004.  I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English Writing/Journalism from the University of Pittsburgh.

My interests: I love to golf and I am a television addict.  Whether it’s sports or a television series, I’ve probably watched it.

My favorite thing about Marywood: The diversity of its programs.  Marywood has so much to offer to a wide array of students.

My favorite place on campus: Liberal Arts Center.  I walk through the Rotunda each morning and it reminds me how much I enjoy being a part of Marywood. 

You'd never guess: I have a collection of more than 200 college t-shirts.  I typically purchase a shirt when I visit a college campus.  I have more than 30 shirts from Pitt, my alma mater.

My best advice: Take advantage of everything a college campus has to offer.  Even if you’re not a sports fan, attend a basketball game.  Even if you’re not a literary fan, attend a poetry reading.  Expand your mind and you will be rewarded.
