Associate Director & Community Action Program Director
Office Phone
Frist Campus Center, 304


As the Associate Director & Community Action Program Director, I support and engage in dialogue and critical reflection connected to civic values and social responsibility. I work to foster a civic ethos on-campus, introducing students, faculty, staff and partners to service and Princeton’s commitment to community engagement through Orientation and first-year student engagement. I provide oversight for assessment of student learning through service and celebrate service achievements and partnerships. 


For more than 20 years, I have been blessed to advise and support service and civic engagement programming in communities across New Jersey, Washington, D.C. and the Boston area. Prior to joining the Princeton community in 2016, I served as the director of the Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service at The George Washington University where I supported co-curricular learning, student leadership, sustained and short-term service projects, and community partnership development. Over the years, I also held similar positions at Northeastern University and Boston University. I believe in the power of communities, the importance of building meaningful relationships and seek to embrace kindness everyday. 

I hold a bachelor of arts degree in economics and environmental analysis and policy and a master’s degree in energy and environmental analysis from Boston University. I earned a certificate of advanced graduate study in educational leadership and management from Northeastern University where my research focused on campus-community partnerships.

What I’m Reading 

I am currently rereading “The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters” by Priya Parker. As we begin coming back together after years of isolation and social distancing, I often find myself thinking about how we can create environments that lead to memorable experiences, deepen relationships and that spark creativity. 

Favorite Community Spot

I am a big fan of public art and the Arts Council of Princeton has worked to support both permanent and seasonal installations around the town. I encourage you to take a stroll down Dohm Alley while enjoying a favorite local treat.
