Director of Transfer and Veteran Admissions
Counselor Territory: Nationwide with a primary focus on the Northeast region
More about me: Born and raised in New York, I hold dual bachelor's degrees in business management and psychology, as well as a master's in counseling. I've spent the bulk of my career assisting students with military backgrounds transition to higher education. Manhattan is the third institution of higher education I've worked for. I have also taught upper-level psychology courses as an adjunct. I'm an avid lifelong New York Knicks fan and basketball enthusiast! Most weekends you can find me at the local gym running up and down and getting shots up! I enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures and traditions, and have visited at least 25 countries and counting to date.
Favorite thing about Manhattan College: The Jasper family is a powerful one. Manhattan College provides a tightly knit, supportive environment that allows its students to grow both academically and personally. Playing a my part as a member of this village is extremely gratifying.
Favorite thing about New York City: I'm a foodie, so having a diverse array of cuisines all within one city is just fantastic! One of the great things about New York City is being able to walk to so many amazing restaurants. I love stepping inside and being greeted with a warm, inviting ambiance and intoxicating aromas while speaking to people from all walks of life. It's part of what makes NYC a special place to call home.
Advice for future students: Try to be involved in as many things as you have the bandwidth for. College is a time of self-discovery and reflection. I'm a firm believer that you get to know what you like based on what you don't like. The only way you're able to gain the insight of the latter is by either experiencing things firsthand or reading about it or talking withothers. Informational interviews are key here! Don't be afraid to engage your professors and visit them during office hours to glean pointers from their experiences.
