Upper Bay State Road
Assistant Director of Residence Life for Upper Bay State Road
I was born and raised in Brockton, MA, “City of Champions.” I attended Brockton High School and was voted “Most Likely to Host a Talk Show.” After high school, I attended Stonehill College and received a BA in communication. In 2004, I received my MA in higher education administration from NYU. I joined the Residence Life team at Boston University in the fall of 2005 and have served as the Residence Hall Director at Myles Standish Hall and Warren Towers. I enjoy working and living on campus. I can be found having breakfast, lunch, or dinner in one of the dining halls, playing a round of squash at the Fitness & Recreation Center, or taking a leisurely stroll along Commonwealth Avenue. I consider fall move-in, traveling on an Alternative Spring Break trip, and Commencement among some of the highlights of the academic year.
Area Director, 575 Commonwealth Ave. Residences
I grew up on the North Shore of Boston in Swampscott, MA, and my mom still lives in the home where I was raised. I received my BS in psychology and criminal justice from Salem State University in 1992, and I earned an M.Ed. from the BU School of Education in 2013. My Student Services professional career is about 17 years in the making, and I have also professionally focused the greater part of the last 30 years in the fields of counseling, mental health, teaching, advocacy, and job development. I have an open-door policy in my office where I welcome visitors, and students may set up an appointment to speak with me.
For the past decade, I open my home to the BU community on a regular basis (the First Sunday night of each month, from 608 pm), during which time I serve refreshments, snacks and home-baked desserts; this is a personal effort made to provide our student community a comfortable place to relax, meet, eat, and enjoy conversation.
I volunteer on campus as a training facilitator for SARP and BU Behavioral Health, facilitate an FY 101 class (First Year-Orientation-style seminar) each fall semester, and have chaperoned a student Community Service trip each spring semester since 2005, among other opportunities. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, landscaping, caring for plants and animals, taking road trips, traveling, and cooking. I look forward to meeting you, seeing you on campus and in the city, and assisting you through your time at Bu!!
