I have enjoyed working at the University of New Haven since the summer of 2006. As
the Senior Web Content Manager, my responsibilities include oversight of the University's
public-facing websites and other digital marketing endeavors. I'm proud to have helped
the University through two major redesigns of its website and I look forward to the
upcoming challenge of transitioning to a new content management system and a responsive
My background includes training in media relations and marketing. The first eight
years of my professional career were spent in intercollegiate athletics, starting
at the University at Albany, then UNC Charlotte, and finally here at University of
New Haven. I joined the University of New Haven as the Director of Athletic Media
Relations, but as one of the heaviest users of the school's web content management
system, I was uniquely positioned to transition into a web programmer position in
2008. I also worked for a brief time as production coordinator for the Yale-New Haven Teachers
Institute at Yale University, working on publishing teaching materials online.
I have always been interested in how organizations communicate and promote themselves.
While earning my master's degree at UAlbany, I worked on a consulting project examining
internal and external communications at SUNY's Professional Development Program. My
final master's project involved a comprehensive examination of every Division I athletics website
and the results were used by UAlbany to help redesign their website.
I have three children, including a baby born in January 2016, and I am an avid fan
of several sports teams, including my hometown Buffalo Bills, my alma mater the North
Carolina Tar Heels, and the Texas Rangers, Golden State Warriors, and New Haven Chargers.
