- Campus Life
Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Westfield State University
I was exposed to the idea of working at AIC back in high school after I learned that my guidance counselor worked here. My senior year of college I did my practicum in the guidance department (oddly enough my mentor also worked in admissions at AIC) at a local high school and I loved seeing the excitement on students faces after receiving acceptance letters. When I first graduated from college I thought I wanted to be a mental health counselor (with the dream of working at AIC always lingering in the back of my mind). I quickly found out that I wasn't quite on the right path and decided higher education was where I belong!
I love that AIC is focused on building a strong sense of community on its campus. Whether you are at an athletic event or walking from one building to another, you always feel welcome. I also love how invested AIC is in their students and employees. Things are always changing and evolving for the better (like our new admissions office, for example). Come check it out! :)
I love being an admissions counselor because I love being that first point of contact for a prospective student. The personal connection that I have the opportunity to make with a student is the best part of my job. Just the other day I was walking to my car and a student stopped me and thanked me for all my help and told me how happy they are here. That makes coming to work worth it every single day.

My stepfather was in the military and until college I never went to the same school for more than 3 years. It has made me very diverse and well-rounded!
The four seasons and the Big E!
"Believe in yourselves, try, dream. Do good" – The one and only Mr. Feeny
Outside, probably with my dogs, or in sweatpants on my couch
I have so many, but the two that really stick out are spring break in Florida with all my closest college friends and doing an independent study on relaxation techniques in relation to stress, pain, and illness.
When I was a child my aunt and uncle had a campground in their backyard. We had a live band there just about every night. My dad used to always take me on the dance floor when they would sing "brown-eyed girl" by Van Morrison. I would stand on his feet and he would spin me all around the dance floor.
John F. Kennedy. I did a research project on him in high school and it was the most interesting project I have ever worked on. I got really involved in the conspiracies around his death and I have so many questions for him!
My family, my friends, and my dogs….Oh and anything with cheese
My favorite hobbies are hiking, watching football, going on mini vacations and adventures, and listening to music
First of all, I would definitely pay off my student loans, travel somewhere exciting, and buy a house with a lot of land where I would foster dogs and find them safe homes.
Here's just a few of many:
