What do you love about Brockport?

The College at Brockport has a charming small-town atmosphere that gives students, faculty and staff the opportunity to connect with each other on a more personal level than is typically feasible at larger schools. 

What's the best part of your job?

I love my students and staff! They make my days fun and keep me on my toes! I also have the pleasure of working with an excellent Residential Life Staff made up of individuals who are truly collaborative, supportive, and creative.

What do you do for fun?

  • Music
  • Read
  • Spend time with friends and family
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Explore – whether it’s using Google, visiting a historic landmark, or wandering through an old bookstore, I love to learn new things!

Most memorable program at Brockport:

Being present at Brockport’s hosting of a regional Nationalization Ceremony on Constitution Day was an amazing experience.

Any advice for first year students?

Make the most of your first year! Make an academic plan, but don’t be afraid to deviate from it and explore! Have fun, make new friend and get involved on campus. Don’t be afraid of failure, but never fail to learn from it. Above all, focus on developing good study habits and laying a solid academic foundation in your first semester – you’ll thank yourself later on!
