I joined the Alumni Relations team in 2008. After earning a master’s degree in Education at Suffolk University, I worked for several years in higher education as an academic counselor, engaging with students one on one and teaching freshman seminar courses. I am passionate about the educational experience. Working in Exeter's Office of Institutional Advancement has allowed me to expand my understanding of the educational experience and discover the impact it can have on students’ lives long after they have graduated.

In my time at Exeter I have developed student and young alumni programs, worked with class reunions and managed regional programming. The best part of my job is getting to know Exonians both as students and as alumni, and learning how their individual Exeter experiences have influenced and impacted their lives.    

I grew up in New England, and after studying abroad, traveling throughout Europe and road-tripping across the United States, I found myself excited to settle down in a place I feel at home. I love the seasons of New England and the adventures that each season brings. You can find me on the beach, skiing the mountains or running through the fall foliage or the early spring sun. I live in Hampton, New Hampshire, with my husband and our three young children, who love to cheer on Big Red from the sidelines.
