I joined the Montserrat office as the new manager in August 2015, prior to this position I served as an Assistant Director in Alumni Relations, University Advancement in December 2014. My journey began in the Thea Bowman AHANA Intercultural Center, as the Administrative Assistant in December, 2002. 

In my new role, my major responsibilities is providing overall leadership in the operational functions of the program. Assisting students at the highest level of financial need to actively participate and experience a Jesuit education. Mentoring, guiding, and supporting students on an individual level in the formation of academic, social and spiritual aspects.

My educational background includes undergraduate and graduate studies at Boston College, concluding with a Bachelor of Science degree (2006), and a Master’s Administrative Studies degree (2009). “Double Eagle!”

Also known to many as (Ms. Smiley), a mentor, friend, and advisor to generations of undergraduates and graduate students. I’m continuing my vocation, which will empower students to persist through their adversities and challenges. My mission is to continue bridging the gap with a welcoming and inclusive space for students. The alternative space for learning and authenticity within the community cultivating stewardship, caring relationships, empowerment and social justice.
