Welcome! I am thrilled to be joining the staff this year as your Director of Studies. Before arriving at Rocky, I spent fourteen years in advising roles, serving as a Fellowship Adviser here at Princeton, Dean for Sophomores and Associate Director of the Honors Program at Rutgers, and founder and Director of the undergraduate research program at Rutgers. I have spent time on four continents, but I am a New Jersey native; I earned my BA in English at Rutgers, picked up a MA in English at UCLA, and returned to Rutgers for my doctoral degree in Sociology and Philosophy of Education. Though my two children (Noa, age 2.5, and Ian, age 7) keep me fairly busy in Flemington when I'm not at Rocky, I can also be found in yoga and kickboxing classes, out for a run, or trolling farmer's markets for seasonal produce and good live music.
My door is (almost) always open, so please stop by to introduce yourself in the coming months, and tell me about the things that interest you; I hope that together we can make Rocky the vibrant intellectual community you want it to be. I look forward to getting to know you, and to helping you to navigate your academic choices and challenges at Princeton and beyond!
