About Me

As a member of the Center for Civic and Global Engagement team, I oversee the day-to-day operations of the Bonner Leaders, Maguire Foundation Scholars, and the Pride Service Site Leaders scholarship programs. The Scholar's and I continually work to build a more collaborative campus and deeper connections to community partners that further the university’s civic mission, while also educating and empowering them to be more civically focused citizens. 

As a veteran, I have always had a passion for community engagement and I now get to foster that through my work with the Center. I feel that I truly get the best of both worlds. I get to play a pivotal role in the lives of students while connecting them to life-changing experiences in the Chester community.

Additionally, I support Global Engagement and International Student Services as a designated school official.
