Director, Human Resources
As a freshman at Messiah College, my intention was to major in accounting. When speaking with my faculty advisor, it became apparent that I wanted to pursue a profession where I interacted frequently with people. That day I changed my major to Human Resource Management and never looked back. After two paid internships and completing my Bachelor’s Degree, I began my first full-time role with an executive search firm. Thereafter, I went on to work for New York University, holding several positions within Human Resources. While there, I attained my Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management. With a solid foundation as a generalist in HR, I sought a position where I could be more closely connected to the mission of my employer. This is what eventually led me to work for NAF. Making a valuable difference in the lives of high school students is one of the most rewarding benefits the organization offers.
