About Me

As career counselor & co-op advisor, I am delighted to provide career counseling to students and alumni of Widener University as well as to support the co-op program.

After earning both a master's degree in rehabilitation counseling and a bachelor's degree in counseling and human services from the University of Scranton, I began my professional career as a vocational counselor working for the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation under the auspices of the Department of Labor and Industry in Philadelphia where I assisted individuals with disabilities in obtaining competitive employment.

During my graduate program, I had the opportunity to work with students in several capacities, including as an academic coach and practicum student counselor. Working with college students is a passion of mine, especially in the field of career. I enjoy helping students identify career goals that align with their interests, values, and skills. The co-op program is especially exciting because I believe that professional work experiences play an important role in identifying a career path, developing professional skills, and ultimately obtaining employment after graduation.
