I am honored to be on the Princeton Internships in Civic Servic (PICS) team supporting our students on their service path at Princeton. In my role as PICS Program Coordinator, I advise students through the internship application process and provide them with ongoing support throughout the summer and into the academic year. I also coordinate all PICS events, and help develop and manage information management systems for the program. If you have questions about PICS, internships in general, or how the Pace Center can help you connect service opportunities to what matters most to you, stop by and say hello - I’d love to meet you.
A proud lifelong resident of central New Jersey, I grew up in Edison and East Brunswick, later moved to Monroe Township and now enjoy my cozy home in Freehold. I received a bachelor of science degree from Boston College, with a double major in marketing and psychology. Before joining the Pace Center in 2013, I served as client service representative for eight years in Counseling & Psychological Services (CPS) at the University. A few years before that, I founded and operated a children’s hands-on science museum called Discovery House – a very cool place for little explorers.

What I'm Reading
Ever since attending her talk here on campus a few years back, I’ve been riveted by "The Aesthetics of Joy" by Ingrid Fetell Lee ‘02. From bright, cheery colors, to confetti and balloons, Ingrid has identified certain things that can bring out the joy in each of us. It’s the little things around us in our everyday lives that can make a difference, if we pay attention to them and choose to be joyful.
Favorite Community Spot
On warm days, I enjoy eating lunch at the garden behind Prospect House. Its bright array of plants and shrubs inspires me in my new-found joy of my own humble gardening pursuits. I consider it a big win to be able to identify species such as sedum, liriope, sweet potato vine, echinacea, catmint and butterfly bush, to name a few. I invite you to try this spot for some quiet meditation and communing with nature.
