CorinnaI was born and raised in Northborough, Massachusetts, and attended Algonquin Regional High School where I was a proud member of the band. After high school I went to a Boston-area university, but left to explore Europe and figure out what to do with my life! A year later I returned after living and working in Cardiff, Wales, to complete a BA in human services from University of Massachusetts, Boston. I am a proud alumnus of BU, where I received my Masters of Education in higher education administration. I joined the Residence Life team at Boston University in the fall of 2005 as the Residence Hall Director for Fairfield Tower (aka A Tower) at Warren Towers. My favorite thing to do outside of work is spend time with my family. We love exploring all that this great city has to offer! If you need a restaurant recommendation, please be in touch.

tomI came to BU after spending three years working at UB (University at Buffalo). Prior to my time in Buffalo, I did my graduate work at the University of Louisville, where I received my M.Ed. in College Student Personnel while working as a Graduate Resident Director. My college career started at the University of Pittsburgh. While at Pitt I was a Resident Assistant for three years, very involved in supporting my Pitt Panthers. I grew to love the steel city and earned my B.A. in Urban Studies (Planning and Development). I am a proud born-and-raised Floridian and miss the beaches and daily rain showers more than anything. I am big into sports and my alliances to the Penguins, Bills, and Pirates run deep. I do not like my passport to gather dust and have gotten the opportunity to travel in and out of the U.S. I’m always up for an adventure to a place I haven’t been before. I enjoy racquetball, kayaking, and bowling, as well as trying new places to eat, walking around the city, and just having a good time with friends and family.

karenI was born and raised in Queens, New York but my parents are from New Orleans, Louisiana, which makes me a huge New Orleans Saints fan. I received my BS from NYU in applied psychology. I decided to take time off after graduation accepting a job with the National College Advising Corp. They were opening the first NY chapter. I was trained as a college advisor and placed in a high school with underrepresented students to help them with their post-secondary options. It was the best two years of my life. It gave me the direction to pursue my masters at BU SED for policy, planning, and administration with a higher education administration focus.

reaBorn in Orlando and raised in Celebration, between sunburns and hurricane-season, Florida is very much my home state. I attended Florida State University where I earned my Bachelor’s in Business Management, Finance, and Marketing. I came up to Boston to continue my education at Northeastern University, where I earned a Master’s in College Student Development & Counseling. Now, I serve as the Residence Hall Director for Shields “C” Tower within the Warren Towers.  The city of Boston and now Boston University have since become my heart’s home, and I might be one of the few who openly admit to loving the winter weather! When not serving the BU student population as Residence Hall Director of Shields Tower at Warren Towers or as an Instructor for the FY101 course series, you’ll likely find me running around Boston, discovering new places to eat, read, and just relax. Biking around town, waking up early to play a round of golf, and checking out a local concert are some of my favorite activities, while reading, yoga, and exploring museums help me relax and look to the future. Feel free to ask for suggestions of what to see around town!
