Hello! I joined the Marywood Admissions team in May 2022. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Marywood University in 2018 and my Master’s in 2022 in Higher Education Administration. I was born and raised in Scranton and currently reside there.

My interests: I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy crafting with my Cricut machine, it is so therapeutic!

My favorite thing about Marywood: Everyone is so kind and welcoming the faculty and students are really what make Marywood so special. The campus is one of a kind!

My favorite place at Marywood: I love Marywood campus as a whole but if I had to narrow it down my favorite place is probably the Learning Commons! It’s a great place to catch up with students and colleagues while grabbing Starbucks!

You’d never guess: I’m a big football fan! On every Saturday and Sunday I’m glued to the TV watching College football & NFL games. I’m a big New York Giants fan!

Best advice: Get involved in clubs and extracurricular activities. They are the best ways to meet people and set yourself up for future success!
