Assistant Director of Admissions
Degree: B.A., Hampshire College

Reason I love working at Hampshire: The engaged, curious, and incredibly hardworking people I interact with every day.

Ask me about these Hampshire Programs: Women's Basketball and Soccer, Student Government, Study Abroad in Cuba, and ISIS Bohm Dialogue.

Piece of advice for prospects in the college search process: Don't be shy about asking questions--especially the hard ones. Questions are often the best means to gain a deeper understanding of whether a school is the right "fit" for you.

Favorite Hampshire secret: There are small wild brown bunnies everywhere!

A random fact about me: I am a dual citizen.

The one thing I want to accomplish in the next several years: Learn conversational Arabic.

Colleges that Change Lives

Hampshire College is a member of Colleges that Change Lives, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and support of a student-centered college search process.

"There are two reasons why Hampshire graduates achieve so much. One is the kind of person the college attracts. The other is what the college does for them by equipping them to become their own wide-ranging explorers and connection-seekers." —Loren Pope, Colleges that Change Lives (2006)
