As the Administrative Manager of the Cornell Botanic Gardens, I collaborate with our leadership, staff, and partners to oversee the department’s business operations and steward our resources.

Prior to this, I was an administrative manager in Global Development. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Cornell with a focus on plant science and sustainable agriculture. I received my master’s degree in Organization Development from Case Western Reserve University and subsequently worked in human services planning and administration before rejoining Cornell in 2006.
