I grew up in Milford, CT and, after graduating high school, moved to Reading, PA to go to school at Albright College. I graduated in 2011 with a B.A. in Digital Media and Spanish and moved back to Milford to work as an HR and Finance Associate at a local staffing company, Aquinas Consulting. After a year, I decided to continue my education in media by pursuing my master’s degree in Interactive Media at Quinnipiac University.
Unfortunately, I knew that Connecticut was too expensive a state to live in, so when the opportunity came, I moved down to Winter Haven, FL with a friend who would be working as a high school physics teacher in a nearby town. I took a risk with the move and found myself struggling through the painful job search process. Luckily, after a few months, I took a job as an Academic Program Specialist in the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Florida, a job which I love.
My ultimate goal is to work in the field of online education and instructional design. In what little free time I have, I like to read, draw, cook and be outside as much as possible.
