Hi my name is Jessica! I am currently a first year student at the University at Buffalo in Amherst, NY. I am in the Higher Education Administration Program with a concentration in Student Affairs. While studying for my Master’s, I am also an Assistant Hall Director for Campus Living. This summer I also had the chance to work at Oklahoma State University with the Leadership Department in Housing and Residence Life through an ACUHO-i internship.
I grow up near Buffalo and lived outside of New York City during my undergrad at SUNY Purchase. I received my Bachelor’s in Theatre and Performance, thus as you might guess I have a strong passion for theatre as well as Student Affairs! You can throw in pugs as another one of my favorite things (some call it an obsession)!
My career goal is to become a successful SA pro in my own way just as I have seen my mentors do and create change within the field. I am hopeful that throughout my career I will be able to be at the forefront of development and change.
