I love connecting students with opportunities. I believe in nurturing growth, creating possibilities and inspiring discoveries. My time at Amherst is often spent as a thought partner for individual students and STEM-focused student groups who are looking for ways to create programming, assessments, exhibits, publications, and extracurricular opportunities for engagement. I help students grow ideas into realities by mapping out plans, coordinating with cross-campus partners, and facilitating connections with the Five College Consortium. As a first-gen college graduate, I am keenly aware of the unique challenges some students face during their first weeks on campus. Each fall, I look for ways to welcome new and diverse STEM-interested students to the community.
