I have been with Princeton University for over 18 years. In 1998, I began at Princeton as an administrative assistant in the office of the Dean of the Faculty. From there, I spent 5 years as the Program Manager in Near Eastern Studies. I have been at my present position as the Department Manager for Slavic Languages and Literatures since 2003. Much of my previous work experience includes working in an administrative and teaching capacity in educational environments. I served as a Community Service Coordinator for the YWCA in Jacksonville Florida, and as a Pre-employment trainer and GED instructor at Pequannock Valley Mental Heath Center in Boonton, New Jersey. My interest in educational administration began while I was attending Rutgers University and became a Resident Advisor in my senior year.
