  • September 8, 2008 was the beginning of my journey here at Princeton Seminary where I am the Admissions Assistant in the Office of Admissions & Financial Aid. In this position, I work with applicants to assist them during their application process, process all admissions applications, assist in our recruiting efforts, and am the recording secretary for the Admissions Committee. The best part of my job has been working with prospective students and applicants. Over the years, I have heard applicants talking about their call. I truly believe that I was called to Princeton Seminary when I applied for a job nine years ago, and I can honestly say that I love my job.

    Outside of the seminary, I am the mother of 3 beautiful daughters. The oldest has just become certified to teach yoga, the middle daughter rides a thoroughbred named Bell, and the youngest is my dancer. I am also the member of First Presbyterian Church of Hamilton Square where I am an ordained elder, teach Sunday School, and sing with the praise band and choir. In 2018 I will once again walk down the aisle when I marry my fiancé.

    An interesting fact about me is that I love penguins and have quite a collection.
