Associate Director of Admissions. I work with all international undergraduate and graduate applicants. 

I have worked in the admission offices for two Philadelphia schools of art and design.  I hold a BFA degree from the University of Michigan and an MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University.  I am a certified K-12 art teacher.  I am a printmaker, painter and mixed media image maker, and have shown my work in numerous exhibitions throughout the region.  My hobbies include gardening, astronomy, history and travel.

Favorite Philly Things
The deep sense of history and culture; the diversity of the population and neighborhoods; the easy, accessible, walking and residential nature of the city are all my favorite things that Philadelphia has to offer.
