Degree: B.S. in Business Administration and a M.S. in Educational Psychology
It's all in the family: What I love about Siena is the family atmosphere.  Even as an employee, I have continued to learn and grow because of this community.
Start Up? Start Here: The Stack Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is a must-see on campus- it is very inspiring!
Crunch: The potato chips from the Lonnstrom Dining Hall are amazing!
Break a leg: Outside of the office, I can be found spending time with my family and watching my children perform on stage!

Advising Students with Last Name (A-G)

Degree: B.A. Economics, Siena College
Local Flare: Loudonville is a great area for students; it’s easy to find somewhere to eat, shop or hang out with friends!
Cozy: The fire pit on campus is so nice it even draws in students on the coldest nights.
Start your day: Having a Starbucks on campus has changed the game. Saints love to grab a cup before their 8 a.m. classes.
Kicks and Kitchens: I love to run near campus after work and then head home and cook something I’ve never made before!

Advising Students with Last Name (H-N)

Degree: B.S. Marketing, Siena College
Family: Siena’s close knit community is unlike any other college I’ve heard of. Everyone has each other’s backs.
Stop By: The best time to visit the Grotto is at night when it is completley lit up.
On The Go: The fresh fruit at the dining hall is great to grab quickly in the morning for breakfast.
Read and Run: After work is done you can find me coaching the Siena cheerleading team. Go Saints!

Advising Students with Last Name (O-Z)

Degree: B.A. Business Management, Penn State University
Kindness Counts: Siena students hold the door open for you.  It's a small gesture but a grand one!
Room with a View: The Grotto is just so beautiful and peaceful to look at.  I have the privilege of seeing it everyday from my office window!
Get the Grub: I love so many different foods at Siena that I can't narrow it down to one.  But I would recommend checking out Roots Café..great ethnic food!
Keeping Busy: I love doing pilates, yoga and Insanity workouts.  I also like to watch sports (Go Yankees, Penn State and of course Saints!), go fishing, to the movies or just hang out with family, friends and my two loveable cats.
