Working as part of a dynamic team within the Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) at Saint Anselm College has allowed me the distinct privilege to hone my passion, while working alongside a talented group of professionals in the areas of: international internship development, study abroad, community engagement, volunteerism, career services, and alumni and employer relations. Engaged learning as a liberal arts tradition is one of the hallmarks of the Saint Anselm College experience, providing a uniquely broad lens for students and optimum platform with which to expand their career portfolio. Cultivating and expanding experiential learning opportunities beyond the classroom is paramount to the CEL, and ultimately translates to the success of our students and alumni.
Saint Anselm College is a majestic New England campus beautifully nestled upon a hilltop overlooking the vibrant mill-city of Manchester, NH. It is a College built on tradition, pride, community, and academic rigor - a testament to our alumni's success and unfailing commitment to St. A's! Professionally, my past experience includes international programs and career management at Suffolk University Law School, Northeastern University, Salem State University, Merrimack College, and working a short stint in publications at Andover - Phillips Academy. After graduate school, I traveled to Senegal, West Africa where I was a volunteer for the United States Peace Corps, helping nine villages in the Sahel region build a shared grain storage unit for use during the soudure (preharvest) period. Upon return from Peace Corps, I worked for four years on a project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), helping reverse "brain-drain" in Southeast Asia.
Personally, I have maintained an international home, hosting over 30 international students from around the globe and sharing with my two children the appreciation and respect of different cultures.
