As the Director of Student Engagement, I lead the department responsible for student organizations, community service, and student leadership programs. We help students be engaged in the IC community from their first week on campus to their last! I work with students, staff, and faculty to create a comprehensive leadership education program emphasizing learning and personal development through practical application of leadership practices and theories. Some of the specific programs that I coordinate include:

Prior to joining Ithaca College in 2008, I worked at a variety of colleges and universities in Maryland, California, and New York. My formal education includes a BS in Human Geography and MS in Education at SUNY College at Geneseo, a MS in Creative Studies at Buffalo State College, and a Women in Leadership Certificate from Cornell University. I facilitate interactive leadership workshops on a variety of topics, so if you would like to set up personalized leadership training for your group, please contact me!

The best way to help people maximize their creative potential is to allow them to do something they love. ~E. P. Torrance
