Background and interests

Given my interest in exploring different cultures, I studied abroad in Nigeria and taught English as a Second Language in Taiwan. I began my student affairs professional experience as a Coordinator of Graduate Student Services and later as a Residence Life Quad Director at Brandeis University. I also worked at the University of North Florida and Florida State University.

I enjoy living in Williamstown with my spouse as well as hiking, 6:00 a.m. spin classes at the Williams gym, and cooking, (with a generous emphasis on eating!).
