M.A. English, Tufts University, MSLIS Simmons College


I have worked to support students' transition to college for twenty years in teaching and administrative roles at Tufts University, Springfield College, Wentworth Institute of Technology, and Urban College of Boston. Most recently, I headed the teaching team for the Cardinal Cushing Library at Emmanuel. In all my previous roles, I've focused on students' acclimation to academic and source based writing.

What I Love About Emmanuel

Emmanuel students engage with new academic experiences from their first days on campus. I love the fact that I get to know my students and then watch them progress all the way to graduation and then into their professional lives.
