Corinna CussonI 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 Master’s 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 husband, Shawn, and our wonderful son, Lucas. We love exploring all that this great city has to offer! If you need a restaurant recommendation, please be in touch.

Patrick HaleI come to this great university after spending two years living in the green mountain state of Vermont, having worked in residence life at a university for two years. I am originally from the suburbs of the greater Chicago area, by way of my birth state of Mississippi. I completed my undergraduate work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in sociology and gender and women’s studies, and received my master’s degree from Indiana University Bloomington in higher education and student affairs. When I’m not busy changing the world one resident at a time, I spend a lot of time listening to music, window shopping in the Back Bay area, dining out with friends, and going for walks around the Boston Public Garden and the Commons. I also am an avid tennis fan (played on my high school team for four years), will be taking on running as a regular hobby, in hopes of running my first 10K very soon. Don’t be surprised to find me along the Charles River Esplanade in my fancy new kicks!

Karen ChaneyI 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.

Zara NizamiI was born in India and moved to the United States with my parents when I was a little girl. I grew up in Lowell, MA and went on to receive a BS in Business from Bay Path College (where I gave the commencement speech at my graduation ceremony). I was an RA during my time at Bay Path and fell in love with the work. I then went on to work at Mount Holyoke College for two years. I am currently working on my Master’s of Education in Higher Education Administration. I came to Boston University in December 2013 after having spent 6 years in Western Massachusetts and am happy to be living in the city. I love getting lost in a great book, eating good food with good people, and traveling. If you see me around campus, I will more than likely be holding a cup of coffee. Interacting with students is the best part of living in Warren so feel free to come up to me for a chat!
