Student Professional Development Staff
Director of Student Professional Development & Undergraduate Research Program
I have a diverse background with a blend of technology and human resource experience. Before coming to work for Temple, I worked in industry for over 20 years - I was the Product Manager for the Students System that you use! Some roles I've held include software developer, QA tester, software consultant, account manager, software trainer, business analysis, SAS implementation specialist, & ETL analyst - just to name a few. I also worked as VP for Worldwide Recruiting at Unisys, so I have sat on both sides of the hiring process!
Prior to moving to Philadelphia, I completed my BA in Psychology and MA in Student Affairs in Higher Education outside of Pittsburgh, PA – yes, I’m a Pittsburgh Steelers fan! I have been working in higher education since 2014 and have developed a strong background in student development and coaching. I joined the Temple community in 2017 and am now a full time College of Science and Technology Career Coach working with students, faculty, and staff to ensure students succeed in transitioning from student to professional!
