I have just recently joined BC as an Assistant Director in the BAIC. My primary focus will be to coordinate the OTE Transitional Summer Program as well as managing our Racial Identity Development Experience (R.I.D.E) Retreat. I will also oversee the Dr. Donald Brown Scholarship Award as well as support, advise, and build relationships with our amazing students. 

Prior to BC, I worked for a private non-profit called Bottom Line as a Success Counselor and then a Success Team Manager – building relationships with first-generation college students while meeting one-on-one on their campus. I earned a Bachelor of Science in General Management at Bridgewater State University and then pursued and earned a Master of Education in Higher Education in Student Affairs through the Executive Track at Salem State University.
