Education: Master’s Degree

Role/Title: Internship Coordinator

What I Do:

  • Assist students and community members with all activities related to job search.
  • Update resumes, cover letter writing/revision, coaching for interviews, personal statements, college applications, and job search.
  • I have over 20 years of experience helping students find internships and jobs, working directly with employers during the hiring process. I base my recommendations for resumes, cover letters, and interviews on strategies that have proven successful and come from employer feedback.

What I Love About My Role:

  • I love seeing individuals gain confidence and competence in their job search skills.
  • Students who work with me find jobs and internships and are frequently accepted into the college programs they prefer.

Advice for students:

  • Begin preparing well in advance so that you feel confident in your documents (resume/cover letter) and in your interviewing skills.


  • Reading, hiking, and dancing

Fun Facts:

  • I went to Egypt 6 weeks after the revolution and when I visited the pyramids, there were only 20 people total at the site (usually it is very crowded)
