My Title
Assistant Director of Admission &
Student Financial Assistance

My Educational Background
B.A. in Communication
University of Hartford

My Territory & Responsibilities:
I am responsible for reviewing all freshmen applications from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, as well as transfer applications for the College of Engineering, Technology and Architecture and Hillyer College. In addition to file review, I also work closely with the digital communication department and our admission social media accounts. Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

My Favorite Qualities of the University of Hartford:
As a former student of the University of Hartford, I can say first hand that this school truly offers the best of both worlds – a small classroom academic atmosphere partnered with a large university feel for student life. Faculty office doors are always open for students to get help and build strong relationships with their professors. With over 100 clubs and organizations, students can find their niche and get involved on campus their first day here, and the location of the University allows for an abundance of internship and job opportunities. Come for a visit and experience what it’s like to be a Hartford Hawk; we look forward to seeing you!

My Favorite Qualities of the University of Hartford:
