What do you do at Brandeis?
I am the Marketing and Box Office Manager for the Department of Student Activities. I handle marketing for the department (website, Facebook, Twitter, and printed materials) and manage Brandeis Tickets, the on-campus box office that provides ticket services for university events held throughout campus (theater and music performances, cultural shows, dance parties, lectures, conferences, and some off-campus trips and events).
I came to Brandeis in September 2000, serving as the Subscriptions Manager for the Department of Theater Arts. I moved over to Department of Student Activities in August 2011.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of Brandeis, my focus is on my family of rescue animals. In addition to my houseful of cats and dogs, I foster, volunteer, and advocate for local rescue groups. I'm particularly skilled at socializing shy and fearful pets. I also work as a personal trainer, specializing in working with seniors and members who are new to fitness, have been away from it for a while, or who are just looking for a change in the same old routine. In whatever time I may have leftover, I also enjoy the interesting challenges of doing projects in, on, and around my 295 year old house.

"Students are the Reason"
The Division of Student Life and Success includes various offices that work to enrich the student experience. These offices are overseen by the Dean of Students, Jamele Adams. Student Life serves as an advocate for all Brandeis students, strives to ensure the quality of their overall co-curricular experience at the university, and promotes opportunities for students to engage in leadership activities and to experience personal, social, and emotional growth and development.
The staff maintains a varied program of social, cultural and intellectual events during the academic year. Our staff works to build a community based upon mutual understanding and consideration. The work of student life and success reflects the commitment to our core values: citizenship, integrity, respect, civility, lifelong learning and embracing diversity.
