What is your favorite thing about working at Binghamton University?
I love the talented students and the atmosphere of the University – there is always a need to strive towards excellence and continuous improvement.

What was your first internship or job?
Barista at Wegmans!

What are you passionate about?
I love cooking, baking, crafting, learning new skills, kayaking, tennis and being active!

What is your best piece of career or professional advice?
Never stop improving yourself – keep educating yourself and expanding your skillsets! Don’t be afraid to apply to positions that you think are beyond your skills and that you don’t meet all of the qualifications for. Take a chance, apply and make a case for yourself! That is how I ended up where I am today!
