  • 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

After graduating from WPI with a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering and a Bachelors of Arts in Environmental Studies, I entered into the construction management and environmental consulting fields. While I appreciated working in industry, my real passion stemmed from the work I did at WPI as an undergrad in the Admissions Office, assisting staff with the recruitment and support of prospective students. In the fall of 2012, I returned to the WPI Undergraduate Admissions Office, as an Admissions Counselor, and also worked in partner with the Office of Multicultural Affairs to support the mission and endeavors of the Office, and I took the appointment of Co-advisor for the WPI student professional organization: National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE),which ultimately led me to my current role as the Outreach Coordinator for Diversity Programs. In this position, I am charged with developing, implementing and assessing diverse programs and events focused on inclusion for the entire campus community, and specifically for underrepresented populations. Outreach is also extended to external community partners in Worcester and beyond, including community-based organizations and enrollment pipeline programs for youth. Outside of my professional life at WPI I enjoy traveling. If I am not exploring my hometown of Boston or planning events you can find me munching on chocolate while watching movies or Football (Go Pats!).
