In my role, I provide an array of direct individual career advising to undergraduates, graduates as well as alumni both in-person and online. The areas of counseling I specialize in are in the Education and Public & Human Services cluster. I also participate in resume and cover letter drop-in hours and provide primary assistance to Masters’ and PhD level students. I work with liaison departments and student organizations to create career focus programs.
Prior to this role, I worked at Rutgers University-Newark as a Career Counselor and as a Supervisor for Fraternities and Sororities for three years. Prior to coming to Rutgers, I worked under the Division of Mental Health at the Marlboro Psychiatric Hospital as an Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Officer.
I possess an MA in Labor Studies from Rutgers University-New Brunswick and a BA in Labor Relations/Sociology from Universidad de Puerto Rico – Rio Piedras, PR.
