I am delighted to be joining the Career & Employment Hub at USM as a Career Advisor. Working with people to explore their career options and help create a plan for their future is my passion. I have worked in the field for 12 years and look forward to continuing my work here at USM.  I am a certified Global Career Development Facilitator and am well versed in several career assessments and interest inventories to help discover your talents and interests. From exploration to assisting with resumes, cover letters, interviewing and networking skills, I look forward to working with you!

I grew up in the Midwest but have been in New England for close to 30 years, calling Maine home for the past 16 years.  My degrees are in Psychology from Kenyon College and Education from Capital University. 

When I am not at work, I enjoy cooking and digging in my garden.
