Professional/Personal Biography: I graduated from Ithaca College with a B.A. in Psychology in 2010. Shortly after, I began working in the Admissions Office here at SUNY Plattsburgh. I am currently completing my master’s degree in Higher Education Administration and will become a proud SUNY alumna in 2014!

Most memorable college experience: Studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain! It was a great experience and I definitely encourage all students to consider studying abroad.

Favorite SUNY Plattsburgh activity: Hockey games! I have been going to the Cardinal hockey games for as long as I can remember. It is truly a great event for the students, faculty, sports fans and the local community alike.

Best advice you received regarding college or would give someone entering college: One of the most important pieces of advice that I received and benefited from in college was to “get to know your professors”. They are such a valuable resource for college students and can present many opportunities during your college years. Also important in my opinion is to try new things! College is a time to explore and get to know yourself and your interests… try different clubs, organizations, or sports and you’ll be amazed at what you might find!
