I am from Mansfield, MA, however, I consider myself a tried and true New Englander. I was born in RI, raised in MA, and educated in ME; I have family roots in Aroostook County and parts of NH and I have lived and worked in VT and CT. I received my B.S. in Environmental Recreation & Tourism Management at the University of Maine at Machias.

I primarily recruit in CT and NY, however, I also work with applicants and interested students who attend high school in DE, DC, VA, NC, SC, FL, WI, MN, IA, ND, SD, PR, and NV. I enjoy the opportunity to travel outside of Maine and talk about all our state has to offer to outdoor recreational enthusiasts like me. I like that I have the opportunity to meet and work closely with interested students and their families. I feel this is a direct representation of what students can expect while enrolled at Unity College.

My favorite part about being an admissions counselor is seeing the gears turn inside student’s heads when they realize their environmental passion can turn into a career. Maine provides so many opportunities for our students – miles of coastline, federally protected public lands, and hardy people with a wealth of experiences. I found Maine to be an ideal learning environment and I enjoy sharing my experiences with students and their families
