Assistant Director of Student Success and Advising
Where you attended undergrad/grad school?
I received my BA in Communications from New Jersey City University and my MA in Higher Education & Student Affairs from NYU Steinhardt.
What's your go-to snack?
Crunchy Cheetos from the vending machine in the basement of Kimball Hall. The yearning kicks in around 3 pm.
What's your favorite book?
Black Betty by Walter Mosley. I am a huge Walter Mosley fan. I love his Easy Rawlins mystery series.
What's your favorite movie?
All-time favorite - Casablanca... Guilty pleasure - Mommie Dearest. I love this movie so much, I don't want to purchase it and miss the excitement I have every time I see it on television. I can quote both movies in their entirety.
What's your favorite music?
House Music. I'm from Jersey!!!!!!!
What do you do in your spare time?
I volunteer with a College Prep Program on the weekends at my local library. In the summer, I'm at as many free concerts/festivals that I can find in the NYC/North Jersey area.
Coolest thing you've done/seen in NYC?
I took my sister to see Wicked on Broadway. I scored great tickets through the NYU Box Office. My sister had been talking about seeing Wicked for years, so I was thrilled when I got the tickets at an awesome price.
One piece of advice you'd give to internship students?
Start thinking about your career now. Doing well in class isn't enough if you plan on being a successful counselor. Join professional organizations. Network with fellow students, alumni students, and professionals in the field. Don't start thinking about your career in May, after graduation.
