Born and raised in New York. However, my family is from New Orleans and traveling between the two place is part of my identity. I attended New York University for my undergraduate studies and received a Bachelor’s of Science in Applied Psychology. Post-undergraduate studies I worked for College Advising Corps for about two years. I worked with high school students in a high need community serving as their college advisor. My work as a college advisor gave me the director to pursue a Master’s at Boston University. I earned a Master’s of Education in Policy, Planning, and Administration with a focus in Higher Education Administration. My graduate studies led me to work in Residence Life at Boston University, where I work as an Area Director for South Campus. In addition, to working with students I enjoy walking around Boston. One of my favorite places in Boston is a cafe and a bookstore. Furthermore, I enjoy going to commons with a good book in hand.

I grew up in Eufaula, AL and earned my Bachelor of Science in social science from the University of Montevallo. After my undergraduate experience, I spent two years abroad working with schools, families, offices, and children as a municipal and community development volunteer for the Peace Corps in the West African country of Niger. Upon returning home, I spent three years working in residence life and student activities at a small college in southwest Georgia. My work inspired me to return to school and I earned my master’s in higher education administration from Boston University. I’ve been on campus since 2013. I am thrilled to be here and can’t wait to meet y’all. Stop by and I’ll be glad to help with anything.

I grew up in Louisiana and graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (UL). I went on to complete my Master of Public Health at BU’s School of Public Health. I fell in love with the city of Boston many years ago when I was younger visiting with my family. I remember walking along the streets wishing I could live here one day so I am grateful to be able to call Boston home now. I still have much of Boston and the New England area in general to explore so I am always open to any suggestions or new places to visit! Even though I love Boston, I do greatly miss Louisiana food and culture so I’m happy to visit home when I can. In my spare time, I am a craft enthusiast, with a particular affinity for knitting and decoupage. I also enjoy decorating and spend a little too much time shopping for home décor. I am passionate about the student experience, especially how community influences the individual. Welcome to BU y’all and I’m so happy that you are here!
