  • Area Coordinator of O’Brien Hall, St. Ann and St. Thomas Apartments, and Merrimack Apartments at Royal Crest

As the Area Coordinator of O’Brien Hall, the St. Ann and St. Thomas Apartments, and the Merrimack College apartments at Royal Crest, my primary responsibilities include supervising three resident advisor staffs, managing programs within the three areas, overseeing facilities issues, maintaining a safe and healthy living environment, and serving as a hearing officer for conduct cases. 

Prior to joining Merrimack, I earned a master’s degree at Boston College while working there as graduate assistant in the Office of Health Promotion, graduate intern for the Emerging Leader Program and graduate staff assistant in the Office of Residential Life. In 2017 I earned a Master’s in Management from Merrimack College.

I am a member of NASPA and have served as an intern on the organization’s Region I Conference Committee. From 2015-17, I served as a professional development chair member on the board of the Boston Area College Housing Association.

In my spare time, I enjoy trying new restaurants, running races, watching movies and spending time with loved ones.
