What is your favorite thing about working at Binghamton University?
My favorite thing is the students that attend Binghamton. I have met so many amazing students over my time working here and have learned so much from all of them.

What was your first internship or job?
My first paid position was picking up pine cones for 50 cents a bucket for my dad. Out of college, I worked as a Residential Life Coordinator prior to coming to Binghamton.

What are you passionate about?
I love reading and watching movies (especially thriller/horror). And spending time with my family (John, Mya, & Morgan).

What is your best piece of career or professional advice?
Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don’t.
