I bring over 10 years of experience as an education manager and college professor to my role as co-host of the USACollegeChat podcast. I’ve worked in academic affairs in both a public and a private college and in student affairs in a large university. I currently teach at an institution of higher education in New York, and I’ve taught online and face-to-face classes at several other institutions since 2008.
I’ve always been passionate about increasing access to college for a diverse group of students. Working with parents and students as a co-founder of City Polytechnic High School of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology and as the director of its Early College program introduced me to many hard-working families who needed more information about the world of college and were overwhelmed by the many options. Along with Regina, I talked with many parents about their hopes for their children and their concerns about college. I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences —as an alumna of three institutions of higher education, as an education manager, and as a college instructor—with parents on the USACollegeChat podcast every week.
