  • Director of Multicultural Affairs

With an educational background in sociology, race and ethnic relations, and communications, coupled with years of experience as a multicultural recruiter in admissions, I am attuned to build the fundamentally necessary bridge between recruitment and strategic outreach and retention efforts for underrepresented populations in higher education, and passionate about working to create an inclusive institutional environment where diversity and pluralism flourish for all members of the community. I am driven by my commitment and passion to support, assist, and serve students in their journeys through higher education and beyond. 

Overseeing The Office of Multicultural Affairs is challenging, as there are multiple programs to sustain and people to serve around the clock; including students, faculty, staff and external community members, with varied needs.  But, with great challenge comes great opportunity, and all of the above is very rewarding!

Outside of my professional endeavors, I enjoy athletic activities –particularly playing basketball.  I also enjoy the arts –on the full spectrum, reading, and sharing time with my friends and family as much as possible.

  • Outreach Coordinator,
    Women's Programs

As the Outreach Coordinator of Women’s Programs, I am responsible for the development, implementation, and assessment of programs and support services for K-12 students and female undergraduate and graduate students.  In 2011, I received both a Master of Arts in Latin American and Caribbean Studies and a Master of Public Affairs with a concentration in Nonprofit Management from Indiana University-Bloomington.  In 2012, I completed a one-year term as a VISTA (Volunteer in Service to America) Fellow in the Office of the Executive Vice President for University Regional Affairs at Indiana University.  As a VISTA Fellow, I had the opportunity to conduct a multi-campus study on the impact of programs and support services on first-generation college students.  This experience allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of how to develop effective programming to help underrepresented and nontraditional students achieve their personal, educational, and professional goals.  In my free time, I enjoy running, cooking with my husband, and spending time with my friends and family.

  • Outreach Coordinator for Diversity Programs

As the Outreach Coordinator for Diversity Programs, I am responsible for the development, implementation and assessment of diverse programs, activities and outreach administered to the entire campus community, and specifically to underrepresented populations, while being attentive to inclusion. Outreach is also extended to external community partners in Worcester and beyond, including that to community-based organizations and enrollment pipeline programs for youth.  This allows me the awesome opportunity to expose middle school and high school students to STEM through impactful programming administered through our office. I am a native of Worcester and a life-long resident to-date, so I bring a significant knowledge of the greater Worcester community to my position at WPI. I hope to use this knowledge and my network to aid our students as they progress through their collegiate endeavors. I began my collegiate journey at Quinsigamond Community College, where I received an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts, and then transferred to Clark University where I earned my Bachelors of the Arts in Political Science with a concentration in International Relations. In my free time I enjoy playing and watching sports –I am a diehard New England sports fan!
