Originally from: Oneonta, NY  

While in College: While in college, I was invovled in a little bit of everything. I was a Resident Assistant for a year, a member of the outdoor adventure club, an open mic night host for the Student Activities Board, and a mentor for a local agency to name a few things.  I also completed two internships including a month long program as an archaeological assistant in Spain. Before college I attended Oneonta High School.

Hobbies: I'm happiest when I'm  hiking, canoeing, working on my house, eating ice cream and walking my dog. I enjoy problem solving and anything that allows me to be creative.

Why Work at Hartwick? I grew up a little over a mile away from Hartwick College. I have always loved the campus and what it brings to the community. Transitioning to Hartwick College professionally was very natural for me!
