I started working for UC Berkeley in December 2014 after living in Boston for 13 years. In 2001, I moved to Chestnut Hill to attend Boston College for graduate school. There, I worked for Learning Resources for Student-Athletes where I academically supported first-year student-athletes. After completing my masters in 2003, I continued working as a learning specialist and taught writing and literature at multiple colleges in the Boston area, including Wheelock College where I directed the Bridge and Peer Tutoring Programs, academically counseled students, worked on student outreach initiatives, and administered an academic referral program campus-wide with TutorTrac. I am thrilled to be part of Residential Life for which I hold all operations of the Resident Faculty Program, supervise the Residential Tutoring Program, and hold other system-wide programming.
