In 1998, I began at Princeton University 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 where my primary responsibility was managing a Title VI grant. 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 Health 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.
