What are the specifics of your educational/career background?

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Journalism at Northeastern University. After working in the journalism field as an assistant website editor, I returned to Northeastern, where I earned my Master of Public Administration degree.

What are the key aspects of your role at Northeastern? What do you enjoy most about what you do?

I work at Northeastern University’s College of Computer and Information Science where I assist the associate dean of administration and student affairs on a day-to-day basis. This includes planning and space allocation of all faculty, students and staff, managing renovations conducted in CCIS, assisting in daily operational duties, and ensuring faculty have an optimized working environment.

What’s the most compelling thing to you about the work that goes on at CCIS?

My greatest interest at CCIS is the direct relation that computer and information science research has to everyday life. From the algorithms involved in Uber’s surge pricing to the faculty designing NASA robots, it’s clear that our faculties research is extremely valuable and cutting edge.

Where did you grow up or spend your most defining years?

I grew up in Waltham, Massachusetts and now live in Framingham, Massachusetts.

What led you to work in your field and/or study at your college?

I chose to study at Northeastern University not only for its academic prowess, but also for the opportunity to work in Boston. For me, Northeastern’s cohesive community creates an outstanding learning and working environment. Boston is an exciting, thriving city and a place that also allows me to follow my passion for college hockey, especially the Northeastern Huskies!
