A bit about me … 

I provide career advising and programming for all engineering and computer science and physical science students. I am a Jumbo (from long ago) and have been back at Tufts in the Career Center for 14 years. Prior to Tufts, I spent many years at Analog Devices in progressive Human Resources roles, the most recent being World-Wide Manager of College Relations. I like to say that I just changed sides of the desk when I moved to the Tufts Career Center.

I have an MBA with a concentration in Human Resources from the Johnson School at Cornell University and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Tufts University. I am married with two “old” sons, a daughter-in-law and a 4-year-old granddaughter!

My most interesting/unusual job … 

Right after grad school, I sold hats with my aunt.
