M.A. Bowling Green State University
B.S. Allegheny College


My professional experience includes developing and advising student-centered service programs, supporting faculty in developing community-based learning courses, and fostering relationships with community partners.

I joined Davidson's Center for Civic Engagement in 2015. In my current role I advise several Civic Engagement Council organizations (including Alternative Breaks), manage the Federal Community Service Work Study program, support the Bonner Scholars, and direct the Education Scholars program.

I first became invested in higher education and civic engagement as an undergraduate student. As I completed my undergraduate degree in neuroscience, my involvement in various service initiatives in western Pennsylvania introduced me to an entirely new field of study and career path. I took a position in civic engagement at my alma mater immediately following graduation and from there, I moved to western Ohio to complete a master's degree in college student personnel while working as a graduate assistant in the service-learning office.

I am grateful to be a part of such an incredible network of people—students, faculty, staff, and partners—who remain committed to social change and the betterment of our communities.
