Academic Counselor-staff, TRIO Student Support Services
I was born and raised in Binghamton, NY. For the first two years of undergrad I went to SUNY Delhi where I majored in Liberal Arts. My Mom encouraged me to become a nurse or a doctor, a career that would make me a lot of money. I transferred to SUNY Oneonta where I majored in Biology with a concentration in pre-health. I was somewhat interested in the material, but was not passionate about it. After that semester I transferred to SUNY Broome and that Fall was accepted into Binghamton University where I majored in Human Development. Finally I found my fit, I found something I was passionate about and was excited to explore. As part of the Human Development program you must complete a practicum. I chose Liberty Partnerships Program at Binghamton High School, an opportunity program I was a part of. Providing support services to high school students to ready them for higher education or the workplace inspired me to seek out similar environments. To do this, I decided to get my MS in Student Affairs Administration at Binghamton and applied to be a Graduate Assistant for TRIO Student Support Services, where they provide support to first-generation, low-income students and students with disabilities. I loved the students and staff so much I stayed for two years as their GA and became an Academic Counselor when I graduated in May of 2019. A fun fact about me is I've travelled to China and England and hope to visit many more countries in the future. I enjoy reading and spending time with my family.
