Associate Director of Graduate Admissions

One thing I love about Mount Ida:

“What attracted me to Mount Ida College is the beautiful campus and its tight-knit community. You feel a sense of belonging and know that faculty and staff care about students success and well-being.

My advice if you are interested in Mount Ida:

Mount Ida College has a history of providing career-oriented education. That is something that I tell anybody interested in one of our graduate programs. The faculty are experts in their field and bring that to the classroom. If you enjoy small classroom sizes and want to propel your career to the next level, Mount Ida College is the right school for you. Also, there’s nothing better than free parking.

Favorite Thing To Do Outside of Work:

If you catch me outside of work, 9 times out of 10 I’m reading a book (or an article on my phone). My favorite book, if you’re interested, is “The Brief Wondrous life of Oscar Wao ” by Junot Diaz. Other than that, I love to spend time with family and friends, thinking about traveling the world and binge-watching T.V. shows on Netflix (or HBO).
