(she/her/hers)

I am delighted to be the Director for the Wisconsin in Washington Program. I love my job because I get to watch students discover their passions, learn, and blossom into young professionals. Before this position I worked the Department of Student Life at Georgetown University Law Center. I am proud to be a two-time Badger alumna with a Bachelor of Arts in French, English, Certificate in European Studies, and Master of Science in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis with an emphasis in Student Affairs Administration. While studying at the University of Wisconsin, I worked in many offices that represented my range of interests including the Wisconsin Union Theater, Wisconsin Union Directorate, International Student Services, and the Office of Vice Provost and Chief Diversity Officer. I was also stage manager with the Wisconsin Singers for two years, travelling all around Wisconsin with the group. Luckily, I was able to fit in a summer study abroad experience in Tours, France. I love to read, listen to all types of music (love live music!), explore new areas of D.C., and am of course an avid Badgers & Packers fan.
