Hello Meese! I currently hold two part-time positions at Harvard: I am Program Manager for Military Student Services at Harvard College, and I also work as a health educator at Harvard's Center for Wellness, where I seek to increase student participation, satisfaction, and peak performance in exercise and physical activity. Prior to that, from 2000-2019, I provided counseling and academic support to Harvard College students at the former Bureau of Study Counsel (BSC). I also ran Harvard’s former in-house sport psychology program for varsity athletes (called AAPEX – Athletic, Academic, & Personal Excellence) for ten years, from 2005-2015, and I coordinate the Harvard College Marathon Challenge, which you should definitely check out!

Here's a bit more about my background. I'm from the East Coast of the US and have spent considerable time living in the far northeast and the deep southeast. As an undergrad, I studied just down the road (and river) at MIT, earning an S.B. and S.M./M.B.A. in business (specializing in real estate and finance). After a six-year stint working with adjudicated and at-risk youth as a field instructor in various wilderness-based, experiential education programs (think “FOP”), I returned to grad school at Harvard (Ed.M. in Adolescent Risk & Prevention) and then matriculated at George Washington University for my doctoral years (Psy.D. in psychology and J.D. in law). I enjoy non-competitive distance running, exploring far-flung parts of Boston, and eating unhealthily.

Over the years, I've worked with many struggling Harvard College students, student-athletes, BGLTQ/questioning students, students involved in all aspects of Title IX issues, and ROTC cadets and midshipmen. I'm happy to talk about whatever's on your mind. Please feel free to reach out if you'd like to have a conversation, as it's always a pleasure and an honor to work with the amazing students at Dunster House!
