I was born and raised in New York and relocated to South Florida with my family while in high school. I returned to NY to attend Vassar College, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Economics. After college, I worked as a Research Technician for the National Center for PTSD in Boston, and then decided to leave the snow behind and pursued a Master of Public Health degree in Health Education at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Upon graduation, I moved to Atlanta, where I worked as the Manager of Graduate Training Programs for the Association of Schools of Public Health. Placing students in internships and fellowships throughout the CDC introduced me to the joys of working with students as they strive to pursue their educational and professional goals. I joined Emory in 2005, as a Career Counselor at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health, where I advised students and alumni on the job search process and collaborated with employers to create meaningful internship and employment opportunities for graduates. As of October, I am thrilled to be part of the BBA Program, as an Advisor to BBA and pre-BBA students. I am also working on admissions and programming efforts, including our new initiative to implement an e-portfolio for all BBA students. Stay tuned for more information on e-portfolio in the spring newsletter.
