There’s no place like home! I was born and raised in Oberlin and have always enjoyed the unique experience of living in a small town with a world class college. Venturing to all the local restaurants, participating in the city festivals, enjoying the free concerts, and watching movies at the Apollo Theatre always made growing up in Oberlin feel special.

I earned my bachelor’s degree from Ohio Wesleyan University and master’s degree from Ohio University. During my undergraduate years, I had the opportunity to travel to Africa where I held two internships with local NGOs in Ghana and Tanzania. After graduation, I explored the movie industry and moved to Los Angeles, CA for a year. I soon realized that my calling was to work with college-bound students in helping them find the right college to call home. I could not be happier to be back “home” and help share all that Oberlin has to offer!

I look forward to meeting future Obies and helping with the college search process. Please feel free to contact me if I can help along the way!
