  1. B.A. Psychology at Penn State University ~ 2000
  2. M.Ed. Higher Education Administration at the University of Delaware ~ 2006


I grew up just outside of State College and attended Penn State as an undergraduate Psychology major. At Penn State I have advised in the Department of Sociology and Crime, Law, and Justice and am currently an adviser in Economics. The absolute best part of my job is working with students and I can't imagine doing anything else.

Outside of work I try to take advantage of the outdoors in central Pennsylvania. In the winter I snowboard and ski and in the summer I love to do anything outdoors whether it's hiking or enjoying a campfire in the evening. I also love to read and gravitate toward historical fiction and suspense novels. And traveling is always on my to-do list!
