I am SO proud to say that I have earned two degrees from Fitchburg State University. In 2003, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology and in 2007, I completed my master’s degree in Applied Communications. You could say that Fitchburg State is like my second home! As a student here, I was a Resident Assistant and was involved with new student orientation. I have worked in the Admissions Office for 10 years and I have worn many hats! I’ve worked with Freshmen, Transfers, International Students, Graduate Students and currently I oversee the Freshmen recruitment process and Admissions operations!

I love working in the field of college admissions because each student has a different story to tell and a different reason for attending school. You may be a high school senior looking to start your career, someone who may be returning to college after a long hiatus or furthering your career with the start of Graduate school. I’m hoping whatever your educational plans are, you allow me to ease your mind and help you enjoy the process! It’s an exciting time in your life and Fitchburg State University is an excellent choice for a top notch education. Our students are great, faculty is second to none and… well… without me sounding to cliché – it really is the #1 State University… you must see it to believe it! So what are you waiting for…come check us out!

Outside of my work life; I have two beautiful 7 year olds… yes… I’m a M.O.M. (Mom of Multiples)! They definitely keep me on my toes and I love every minute of it.
