I am excited to serve the gradaute student population at Boston College. We are a diverse bunch - enrolled in a wide range of programs and in different places in terms of our career and education. My goal for the academic year is to learn about the issues that are most relevant to graduate students and to make sure the administration is adequately supporting the students. Please do not hesitate to reach out, I would love to talk with you about your experiences at Boston College.

I am the Director of Finances at the GSA. In my role, I work with you (the students) to provide you with the financial help for the amazing academic research / conference presentations that you undertake by reimbursing your expenses. I also work closely with the treasurers of the graduate student bodies for the school-wide events they organize. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions, and do drop by the Murray Graduate Student Center to say HI.

As a new member of the GSA board, I am eager to serve as the Director of Programming for 2014-2015! This year, my main focus will be planning programs that bring together students from all schools, concentrations, and degree programs. As I know grad students lead busy lives, I will strive to create programming that is relevant, interesting, fun, and that fits into your busy schedule as best as possible. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have ideas for programs you'd like to see, or if you ave an issue you'd like the GSA to address!
