Director of Career Development
There are jobs out there…if you know how to find them, and how to transform yourself into the candidate they can’t pass up.
Through daily contact with corporate recruiters at major corporations and small businesses, across a wide range of industries, I have developed the ability to identify a candidate’s strengths and weaknesses compared to market needs and prepare them to face an ever-changing and difficult job search process.
Make an appointment to come see me and I’ll help you, too!
I’ll work with you to help you navigate a personalized career development program including major choice, internships and experiential learning, networking, full-time job search, professional development opportunities and graduate school advisement.
**I assist all CAS majors and minors. If you are a student in another school here at QU, please click here to connect with the career development staff member in your school.

Research and Academic Interests
I am interested in how life works at the molecular and cellular level. As an undergraduate at Ithaca College, I worked on a project aimed at elucidating the structure and function of cytochrome c oxidase in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. That work fueled my interest in the field, and I went on to pursue graduate studies in a department that had broad interests in the fields of molecular, cellular, developmental, and neurobiology. My graduate worked involved exploring the molecular and cellular neurobiology of pheromone detection in mammals. During my graduate training, I became very interested in teaching and academic advising, and worked as an academic advisor and lecturer from 2003-2015, when I came to Quinnipiac University.
