Welcome to my online portfolio! I invite you to review all the sections of my portfolio to learn more about me, my skills and experiences gained during graduate school at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota.

Currently, I work at New York University as a Residence Hall Assistant Director in Residential Life and Housing Services. As an RHAD, I contribute to resident's learning, growth, and success at NYU. I also oversee academic support, staff supervision, hall council, student conduct, crisis intervention, and social justice education, to promote student success. As part of a Building Leadership Team, which includes the Residence Hall Director,  Residence Hall Resource Manager, and me, we lead the charge of student and community development in Goddard Hall, the only all first-year Residential College at NYU.

In Goddard Hall, I supervise 6 resident assistants and advice hall council. Additionally, I work with Dr. Carley Moore, Goddard's Faculty-Fellow-in-Residence and 4 Faculty Affiliates to foster habits of curiosity and involvement in educational, cultural and service activities beyond the formal confines of the classroom.

As a former graduate student in the Higher Education Administration program at St. Cloud State University (SCSU), I had the opportunity to learn several student development theories, critical issues in Higher Education, research methods, and an overview of human resources management, finance, and community-university communications.

During the completion of my master's degree, I worked as a graduate assistant for Resident Academic Success in the Department of Residential Life at SCSU. In this capacity, I was the co-chair for the Special Events and Service Learning Committee, participated in search committees for Hall Directors, and collaborated with several internal and external campus partners, including Department of Campus Involvement (DCI), University Program Board (UPB), Residence Hall Association (RHA), and Sodexo. I was also the advisor for the RHA Social Justice Committee, where we hosted events that addressed LGBT issues (i.e. The Closet Project), hunger (i.e. Oxfam Hunger Banquet), racism, and body image. In the summer of 2015, I served as the Assistant Hall Director for Coborn Plaza Apartments.

In the two years of graduate school, I strengthened my leadership skills, my knowledge of higher education policies & procedures, and my understanding of the administration role in establishing relationships with faculty, staff, students, and community partners. This education journey fueled my passion for students and it provided possibilities to learn more about student development and how administrators can positively impact the experiences of college students.

This electronic portfolio was designed to showcase my educational and professional accomplishments in Higher Education while at St. Cloud State University (2014-2016). It displays artifacts for all 14 competencies that I developed while enrolled in the Higher Education Administration program at SCSU.
