Career Communities

My background has included work in several different counseling settings, including two mental health facilities and my private career advising firm. Notably, by starting my advising firm, through career and job skills presentations within my community, I accomplished my goal to help those whose limited resources had restricted their ability to obtain gainful employment. Since joining Rutgers Career Services in 2009, I have enjoyed advising thousands of students on various career topics. Over the years at the university, I have worked for two different departments, including Career Services and a Master of Science program. My entrepreneurism, community experience, career counseling, and pursuit of advanced degrees in Psychological Counseling and Higher Education encompass just a few of the experiences that have enriched my counseling and higher education journey. In terms of my CES advising role, my areas of expertise include Health and Life Science Personal Statement and Admission Interview prep, Graduate School planning, Health, and Life Science career planning, as well as Job and Internship Search. I work closely with HPO advisors, EMSOP advisors, and many other campus partners to ensure that students targeting a career in research or the health professions receive the highest quality advising. If interested in a life science or healthcare career or advanced program admission, please visit our office early and often.
