Degree(s) Held and from what Institution(s):

Bachelors of Science in Business Management and Human Resources from Bridgewater State University. I am also currently working on my Master's degree in Counseling at AIC.

Two sentences summarizing you, and your experience at AIC:

I was exposed to college admissions as a freshman in college when I began working as a tour guide at BSC. I loved working with the prospective students and sharing with each one of them why college is so important and so much fun. After graduation, my goal was to become an admissions counselor, so I would be able to continue sharing my love of college and the rite of passage it is for so many individuals. AIC has given me this opportunity and I am loving every second of it!

What I love about American International College:

I love that AIC is focused on the individual as a whole. Every student is unique and brings something new and important to the college. Whether you are at an athlete or a business major, you will always feel welcome and at home at AIC.

Why I love being an admissions counselor:

I love being an admissions counselor because I love that each day I am able to connect with people who are beginning the most exciting and awesome part of their educational career. Attending college allows you to grow as an individual and learn about who you are as a person, friend, daughter, and contributing part of society.
