reaOriginally from the Sunshine State, I attended Florida State University where I earned a Bachelor’s in Business Management, Finance, and Marketing. I later moved up to Boston to attend Northeastern University, where I earned a Master’s in College Student Development and counseling. I also served as an intern in Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Student Activities & Leadership office where I helped plan and facilitate conferences and retreats focusing on leadership development. I next joined the Boston University Residence Life team in 2015 as Residence Hall Director of Shields Tower. Now, I serve as Assistant Director for Residence Life at Warren Towers. When not serving Boston University Residence Life, I act as an Instructor for both the FY101 series and the FY103: Identity, Inclusion and Social Action series. You can also find me biking around Boston, discovering new places to eat, read, and relax. If you’d like suggestions of what to discover around town, feel free to reach out!

My name is Adrienne Kisner and this is my second time at Boston University, but my first year as a member of the professional Office of Residence Life staff.  I have a bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies and Spanish from Albright College, a M.Div. from Boston University School of Theology, a Ph.D. in Practical Theology also from BU, and an MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts.  After attending graduate school at Boston University, I worked as a Residence Director, Chaplain, and writing instructor at Wheelock College.  Since Wheelock College merged with BU, it’s like I never left.  They say not to walk over the coat of arms on Marsh Plaza or you’ll be here forever—I am anecdotal proof that this is true.  In my spare time, I teach creative writing for Southern New Hampshire University, write young adult and middle grade fiction, and sit on the second floor of the Boston Public Library.  My door is always open for those who have any questions, comments, concerns, or book recommendations.

My name is Amber Walter and I came to Boston University in 2019. I am originally from a small town in Indiana but living close to Chicago I found a love for the city. I have a Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Indianapolis where I studied Criminology and Sociology. I later moved to the Sunshine State and received a Master’s of Science in Higher Education Administration from Florida International University. After graduating I decided to take another leap and move to the upper east coast where I was a Residence Hall Director at the University of New Hampshire for two years before finding my way back to the city here in Boston. In my free time I love to be outside (Fall is my favorite season hands down). You can usually find me with somewhere with a good book and a strong cup of coffee. If you need someone to talk to, have any questions, or share a cup of coffee with, my door is open!

Originally from Miami, FL, but no stranger to New England, my name is Alan Alleyne (Ah-leen; it’s much simpler than it looks) and I am happy to join the Warren Towers team.  Believe it or not, this is my second time traveling from the South to take up residence in New England. I got my professional start in Higher Education while working at the University of New Hampshire, but started down this path in Residence Life as a Resident Assistant while attending the University of West Florida, in Pensacola, FL. During my time there, I earned my B.A in Graphic Design and continued on to pursue my M.Ed in College Student Affairs Administration. In an effort to provide the best service to students that I can, I’ve tried to dabble in many areas beneath the Higher Ed umbrella so that I can always provide a starting point for those in need. At the end of the day, however, Residence Life is home, and I hope to make that true for students as well.
