Education

  • MS in Taxation, Suffolk University
  • BS in Business and Economics, North Park University

What are the specifics of your educational/career background?

I completed my BS in Business and Economics with a concentration in Accounting at North Park University in Chicago IL. I also completed my MS in Taxation at Sawyer School of Business at Suffolk University in Boston MA. After spending five years in public accounting, I moved into Higher Education and have not looked back.

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

I support the Associate Dean of Administration and Finance in forecasting revenue and expenses. This includes overseeing the purchasing and reconciliation of monthly business activity. My role extends beyond fiscal data by being a main source for student, coop, financial aid and enrollment data. Being able to provide timely and reliable data is imperative to inform the decisions made in CCIS each day. I look forward to supporting the continued growth in CCIS for years to come.

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

I grew up in Reading MA, and after spending 7 years in Chicago I am happy to be back in Boston’s northern suburbs. I may be biased since I grew up here, but I love New England.

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

After years of late night tax seasons I made the move to higher education to create space for more time with my family. Since being in Higher Education, I learned how challenging it is to determine which competing priority should be implemented. I also enjoy seeing the students learn and grow.
