My Responsibilities

In my role as Coordinator, I work with Residence Hall Coordinators and Resident Assistants in developing and supporting members of their community. If there is something someone wishes to change in their communities or personal lives, I can be a resource in helping them find the resources they need to succeed. My focus areas are around mental health and well-being, student conduct, alcohol and other drugs, and policies that allow all of our community members to succeed at UD and beyond. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

  • Favorite Quote

    "And when I get that feeling in my stomach – you know that feeling when all of the sudden you get a ball of energy and it shoots down into your legs and up into your arms and tells you to get up and stand up and go to the refrigerator and get a cheese sandwich – that’s my cheese monster talking. And my cheese monster will never be satisfied by cheddar, only the cheese of accomplishment."
    - Ze Frank, An Invocation For Beginnings

    Life Outside UD

    In addition to my work, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, travelling, cooking, finding the best places to eat on the East Coast, going to concerts, podcasts, board games, dogs and television and movies.
