About Emma

I graduated from the University of Connecticut in May 2023 with a bachelor's in Psychological Sciences and minors in English and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. During my time at UConn, I was involved in campus life as the Vice President of Honors for Diversity, the Treasurer of CareCakes, a research assistant in the Lay Theories of Prejudice Lab, and a peer mentor in the UConn Connects program. I have always had an interest in working with students, and my involvement in various organizations on campus during my time as an undergraduate student sparked my interest in a career in higher education.

I joined the Undergraduate Admissions team at the University of New Haven in October 2023 as the Assistant Director of Events, and I love planning events for prospective and accepted students and their families. I also have the privilege of working with our Charger Ambassadors, student tour guides who really enhance the visit experience!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about our events or the University of New Haven. I am excited to connect with you!
