Why did you choose to work at Barnard?
Barnard represents a school whose legacy started on the foundation of empowerment and moving forward regardless of the status quo. As someone who values that very sentiment, I would be remiss if I could not be part of this legacy. It was a clear fit for me to be Barnard Bound!
What is your favorite book?
1984 by George Orwell
What is your favorite thing to do in NYC?
As a proud Bronx native, I love to see my Yankees whenever they are home! #JeterForever
What is your favorite place on campus?
This may technically be "off campus," but standing in front of the main gates looking at Barnard Hall. The excitement I feel right before getting on campus knowing that I will be with wonderful students and colleagues who are thoughtful in their everyday, uplifting one another and just in all they do gives me the boost I need every day.
What is a random fun fact about yourself?
I LOVE commercial jingles and will sing them often.
