What is your favorite thing about working at Binghamton University?
My favorite part is that it is a place where students, staff and faculty can continue to grow, learn and stretch as a community and with intention.

What was your first internship or job?
AmeriCorps VISTA with the US Committee for Refugee and Immigrants

What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about building authentic relationships and understanding across cultures and differences.

What is your best piece of career or professional advice?
There is always an element of exploration throughout the career development process. Even if you secure your “dream job” you may find that it’s not all you expected it to be. New information helps you make informed decisions for the next step. Don’t be afraid to pivot to something new!
