Community Engagement Administrator
What drew you to work for the Center?
The opportunity to be part of a dynamic team, to partner with the broader community to address societal needs, and to interact with passionate students drew me to work for the PKG Center.
If you could travel anywhere in the world to take part in a service project, where would you want to go and why?
This question is just too hard. I am excited to build new relationships with community partners and would be thrilled to travel to any locations across the globe that are interested in promoting human rights, and creating sustainable partnerships based in mutuality and shared experience with students.
What do you do for fun outside the office?
Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, running, and kayaking on the Charles.
