Welcome to fair Dunster! As your House Administrator, I manage student housing, as well as House events and finances. I also serve as a sophomore academic adviser here in Dunster. I’m here to support Dunster students during their time at the College, and strive to be a friendly face for you in the House.

Originally from New York, I moved to Boston and studied English literature, history, and Japanese as an undergraduate. I then completed a Masters in Education Administration and Policy at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

In my spare time, I lead college essay writing workshops at the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Network and take art classes in Cambridge. I also love spending time at home with my husband, who teaches in Methuen, and our dog-like cat, Clove.

I am always eager to get to know students and staff, so please stop by my office on the third floor (E303G) to say hello!
