biography

B.A. in Communication Management, University of Dayton

Originally from Buffalo, N.Y., I began my career in admission as a senior at the University of Dayton. I worked as a telecounselor and loved speaking with high school juniors and seniors about how UD could be the perfect fit for them. When an opportunity presented itself to join the admission team after graduation, I was thrilled. For the past six years, I have enjoyed working with students to guide them toward becoming a Flyer! At home I enjoy spending time with my husband and my daughter (Class of 2033).

Why I Love UD

From the moment I stepped foot on campus as a high school senior, I knew I had found my home away from home. There is something special that happens when you find the perfect school — a place you can envision yourself becoming a part of the community. Yes, the people make our campus special, but for me it was the never ending opportunities to explore my passions and try new things along the way that make me love UD. Looking back, my time working at the American Cancer Society as an intern, performing with the University Choral and studying abroad in London, all contributed to my amazing experience as a student and the person I am today.
