About Me

I support and provide leadership to the awesome Muller Hall staff and all initiatives surrounding freshmen, transfer, and international recruitment.

My favorite place on Widener’s campus is: The Leadership Wall in the Oskin Leadership Institute. I love reading the leadership philosophies (articulated in under ten words!) of our students. It’s very inspiring.

Fun fact about me: At three years of age, both of my sons joined the Widener Pride community as students – in the Child Development Center – and have been “judges” in the Chester and Melrose mascot auditions. Widener Pride starts young!

My Favorite Thing About Widener

Accepted Students Day! This is our team’s Super Bowl, and it is so energizing and exciting to welcome all of the admitted students to campus and show what Widener is all about. Everyone across campus collaborates to make this event special, and everyone demonstrates all of their Widener Pride.
