I moved to Ithaca in 2005 and began my career at Cornell University in the Hospital for Animals as the administrative assistant to the Hospital Director. After a few other brief stops at Cornell, I landed in Biological & Environmental Engineering where I happily have been since 2009. In my BEE role, I am a faculty secretary where I provide support to several faculty members, their graduate students, post-docs and students.
In 2019-2020, I did an 11-month gig in the School of Integrative Plant Science with Rebecca Nelson. I started my current half-time gig with the Cornell Small Farms Program in late November 2021. In this gig, I am working to support the online courses as a Course Administrator.
Before moving to Ithaca from Bar Harbor, Maine, I was a legal secretary for many years. I am a life-long learner, but my formal education includes a Bachelor of Arts from The University of Maine in Social Sciences. When I am not in the office, I enjoy hiking in the Finger Lakes with my two dogs, Lola and Bella, reading, and traveling to cool places around the world.
