Career and College Adviser

I grew up in Connecticut and went to public school throughout my life. After taking a year off to sharpen my priorities, I attended Ithaca College, ‘19 to gain a degree in Environmental Studies. I have always found purpose in working with young people, from working at summer camps, coaching baseball, and being a part of mentorship programs. As College & Career Advisor, my goal is to support the thinking of students for a life of passion and purpose after high school and meet the challenges of college and career in the 21st century. In addition to working at New Roots, I am involved with Building Bridges, a local activist group that focuses on the Ithaca Green New Deal. In my free time, I explore existential questions about justice and focus on growing food. I find my job at NRCS very fulfilling. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or want to connect.
