“Cornell Botanic Gardens has played a central role in my Cornell experience, from my earliest Cornell memories as a toddler, visiting the F.R. Newman Arboretum with my mom. As a student, I visited the Botanic Gardens frequently with CALS classes and with friends. In the years since graduating, I’ve come to appreciate even more all that Cornell Botanic Gardens contributes to the university, the Ithaca community, and the larger world. There’s something sparking inspiration around every corner, from the stunning gorges to gardens demonstrating climate-change impacts. Having such an incredible natural and educational resource in our midst is something Cornellians should not take for granted.”


Since graduating from Cornell, I have worked in both secondary and post-secondary education, first in alumni relations, and now in marketing and communications. My current role at Harvard involves email marketing, marketing automation, and social media management for the university’s Division of Continuing Education. Outside of work, I’m an avid amateur photographer, traveler, and Cornell volunteer. In addition to my service on the advisory council for Cornell Botanic Gardens, I serve as vice president of communications and marketing for the Cornell Club of Boston, an all-volunteer alumni organization serving the more than 10,000 Cornell alumni in the Boston area.
