My Background

Prior to joining College Coach, I worked as a financial aid counselor at Curry College where my main responsibilities included supporting veterans who wanted to begin or continue their educational journey and reconciliation of all federal Pell grant funding. Before Curry, I served as a financial aid counselor at Northeastern University. While at Northeastern, I worked with a large student caseload and reviewed students for financial aid eligibility. I also supported our athletic director to appropriately award scholarships and was a member of several committees including the interview, merit scholarship, and general appeal committees.
Would definitely recommend College Coach…So many questions come up throughout and it really helps to have some you can trust to give good advice. The outcome couldn’t have been any better for [my daughter].

Why I Joined College Coach

I joined College Coach to continue supporting families in their educational journey. I recognize that college finance can be very overwhelming, and I like helping students and parents feel confident in the process. Making connections with families and being empathetic to their experiences is something I really enjoy!

Some of my favorite pastimes

In my free time, I love to cook for family and friends, read a good book, work in the garden, and go for long walks with my dog Pippa. I also enjoy attending all my children’s various activities, which mostly involve being at a hockey rink or outdoor field.
