I am very excited to be joining the Kirkland House office and community as the Academic Coordinator. It is an opportunity to combine my passion for helping others with the joy of supporting education. Previously, I worked in the admissions office at Boston College Law School for over eleven years. I really loved being involved in education and getting to see groups of students through their time in school from admission to graduation. I started working at Harvard University in September 2021 as a temporary employee at Harvard Law School. I came to Kirkland House in January 2022.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, baking, working on word search puzzles, reading crime fiction books, getting outside and exploring Boston's historic walking trails, and spending time with my amazing family and friends. I am an avid New England Sports fan. I am also an active volunteer with a number of Boston organizations, food pantries, kitchens, and shelters.
As an academic coordinator, I am here to offer support, advise students, assist students with academic questions, compose official letters, handle confidential student files, and try to create a supportive environment for Kirkland students. I can assist with preparing documents for: Administrative Board petitions, the premed application process, letters of recommendation, and your student record. Finally, I can also answer questions related to tracking student progress toward graduation requirements, as well as important dates and deadlines.
Students can email me with questions, or you can stop by my office in H - entryway during my daily office hours 3-4 pm, Monday - Friday. I look forward to meeting you!
