Director of Professional Development and Internship Programs


Office of Career and Professional Development





I’m passionate about helping students make the most out of their college experiences. As the Director of Professional Development and Internship Programs, I coach students through the job and internships search process and how to best showcase their skills and talents. I also oversee the various internship programs offered by the College: For-Credit Internships, On-Campus Internships, and the CityEdge Internship Stipend. As a member of the Division of Student Success and Engagement, I strive to work with departments across the college to open interdepartmental communication and streamline processes for students.

Get to Know Me!

Hometown: Sykesville, MD

Things I Enjoy: I love to cook and try new recipes. My dream career as a kid was to become a chef, so I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. I even occasionally have Zoom cooking nights with some of my best friends from high school where we share our favorite recipes with each other and catch up! This group has also led me to join a book club, but I’m not the best at reading every book each month. Now, if I could join a play/musical of the month club I’d be at every meeting. I love to see productions throughout the city, and I have been actively trying to see more now that theatre is back! Although, I’m equally as happy staying home and watching a new show on Netflix or the latest episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
