Born and raised right in Hamilton, NY, Colgate has always been a part of my life. Between school events held by Colgate during my time growing up, and being a part of the Colgate Bookstore staff in high school, Colgate has and will always hold a special place in my heart. As the liaison between Colgate University and Help Restore Hope Center, I have no obligation to report any information told to me unless requested by the student or survivor.
While in high school and college, I spent 5 years working at the Colgate Bookstore, an excellent experience which has brought me many great friends. I graduated high school from Hamilton Central School in 2013, and went on to continue my education at Monroe Community College in Rochester, NY. I graduated with my Associate’s Degree in Applied Science with a focus in Psychology. After graduating, I continued my education at SUNY College at Brockport and received my Bachelors of Science in Psychology, with a minor in Public Health.
Following my graduation from Brockport in 2017, I moved to Keene Valley, NY, in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. While living in the mountains, I was employed by Northern Rivers Family of Services, working with children and families that are in the Foster Care system. I assisted these children and their foster families with skill building, relationship building, healthy boundaries, social skills, and respite time. This job was a lot of fun, but I needed to be closer to my family back in Central New York.
I am now employed by Liberty Resources’ Help Restore Hope Center, assisting survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking find resources and help in their community. I have specific training in human trafficking, domestic violence and sexual assault response, trauma-informed care, cultural diversity, advocating within school systems, crisis calls, Enough is Enough, and safe dating. In my free time, I love to mountain climb, hike, meditate, make DIY crafts, and cook new recipes. I also love playing with dogs, and am anxiously awaiting the day I can have one of my own.
