I am a former Admissions Counselor at Swarthmore College’s Admissions Office, where I served as the Regional Director for the Midwest and the state of Virginia. I first started working with admissions as a student interviewer at Swarthmore, my undergraduate alma mater. I very quickly developed a deep interest in exploring and understanding students’ directions and motivations, encouraging them to seek greater self-understanding so as to more clearly express and achieve their desired destination. After leaving Swarthmore’s admissions office, I continued part-time work in admissions by reading applications, interviewing students, and representing Swarthmore during my free time.
After completing Columbia University’s Postbaccalaureate Premedical Program, I am presently pursuing a medical degree at the School of Medicine of Stony Brook University. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, playing music, hiking, and practicing yoga.
