About Me

I am the regional recruiter for the DMV (Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia). I work out of my home near Emmitsburg, MD and as such I am able to work closely with the schools in my area as well as my students and their families.
My favorite place on the Widener campus is the main campus green. On warm days it is packed with students, and even a few dogs, having fun and enjoying the nice day. I love the sport of rowing, and rowed Crew in college. In addition, I spent six years coaching rowing at the collegiate level after I graduated from college. It was an amazing experience.

My Favorite Thing About Widener

Freshman Convocation - When the new class enters campus under "the Dome" it is an amazing site. To see all the excitement and promise in the new students is refreshing and motivating.
