My work in education started when I was an Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Dartmouth College, my alma mater. In addition to reading applications and making admissions decisions, I led our recruitment efforts for Black students and supervised the Senior Interviewer program. I moved back to my hometown, Chicago, and began working in the Undergraduate Admissions office at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. There, I also read applications, made admissions decisions, and led our recruitment efforts for Black students. I completed my MS in Higher Education at the University of Pennsylvania and my Ph.D. at Loyola University Chicago, where I studied, traveled, and taught in Tunisia, Cuba, South Korea, and China. My most recent position was working with students from China, helping both undergraduates and graduates succeed through the admissions process. Over the course of my career, I have helped students aged 6 to over 30 find their own path toward new educational opportunities.
