Resident Tutor Tutor in: Public Service, Race Relations, Wellness, Spirituality
Hi! I’m excited to be returning to Kirkland as a resident tutor this year alongside my partner Lumumba! I am a Counseling Psychology doctoral student at Boston College focusing on culturally sensitive counseling, spiritual and religious coping, and psychological interventions for students of Color at predominantly White institutions of higher learning. I received my Master's of Divinity (MDiv) from Harvard Divinity School, where I concentrated in spiritual care and counseling. I have worked as a chaplain for college students and am currently working in college mental health counseling. Here at Kirkland, I am a Race Relations, Spiritual Wellness, and Public Service Tutor. In my free time, I enjoy reading, tea, crafting, podcasts, and good conversation. I look forward to getting to know you more throughout the year and hope to see you at some of our events!
Resident Tutor B-23 Tutor in: Wellness, HoCo Adviser, Boat Club
Hi Kirkland! Eric and I are very excited to be returning to Kirkland as B-entryway tutors. I grew up near Chicago and completed my undergraduate years at UIUC where I studied speech and hearing science with a minor in Spanish. After that, I received my MS in speech-language pathology from Boston University and now I provide therapy to students with communication disorders in the Watertown Public Schools. When I'm not on the hunt for new therapy materials, I enjoy drawing, watching trashy TV shows, and wandering around Boston. I look forward to getting to know you and am always ready to talk about education, health sciences, languages, art, or the relative merits of Chicago vs New York pizza. Ask me why Kirkland's Boat Club features fresh-baked cookies and is not actually about boats.
