Wheaton Influences:
Some of my most formative and long-standing friendships were built at Wheaton through my First Year Seminar (FYS) (starting on Day 1!) and by living in the Emerson Feminist Perspectives house. The environment in both that class and Emerson was one of open dialogue, inclusion, discussing ideas and debate. My first class with Professor Kim had me running to change my major to Women’s Studies (from Pre-med/Chem!), and my work-study job in the Admissions Office actually kick-started my career. The impacts Wheaton has had on my life are too many to count!

Wheaton Activities and Volunteer History:
Filene Center Career Partner, 2015 – 2016

Academic Background:
MS in Communication Management, Simmons University
Bachelor of Arts, Women’s Studies, Wheaton College, 2005

Reason for Serving on the Board:
Serving on the Alumni Board of Directors gives me the opportunity to give back to Wheaton in a way that blends my professional life and my love for the experiences and connections I nurtured on campus. In my career, I design strategies and build teams to support the hiring and growth of talent at my company. As Nominating Committee Chair, I’ll have the unique opportunity to work with so many alumni and staff to do the same thing for the Wheaton ABD!

Fun Fact:
I was a barista at the (original) Lyon’s Den where I first learned how to use an espresso machine. I can still remember the exact sound the steamer makes when the milk is ready!
