Welcome to New College West! As Assistant Dean for Student Life, I support the co-curricular aspects of your Princeton experience. This includes student health and wellness, residential life, social engagement, and community standards. I work closely with the Residential College Advisers (RCAs) and Resident Graduate Students (RGSs) to create a community in which all students may learn, contribute, and grow as individuals. 

Prior to joining the team at New College West, I held positions at other institutions in residential life, counseling services, and academic support. I earned an M.S. in professional counseling from Lipscomb University and a B.A. in biology from Freed-Hardeman University, both in my home state of Tennessee.

I enjoy theater, cooking, traveling, and taking care of my house plants. You can usually find me at Coffee Club having my second or third cup of coffee for the day. Feel free to stop by my office anytime, whether you need some help or you just want to discuss something interesting that you’re reading. I look forward to meeting each of you soon!
