As a recent graduate of the University of Rhode Island, I knew that I wanted to continue to call Rhody my home, hence why I chose to come work at Salve Regina! My experience in student leadership as an undergraduate led to my interest in working in college admissions. I love working with students in Rhode Island and getting involved in the community. I am passionate about student development and enjoy that in my role I get to work with prospective students as well as our student ambassadors.
