Faculty Advisers on Course Selection and Success at Princeton
FACULTY ADVISER PERSPECTIVES
Every student at Princeton is assigned a faculty adviser to help you choose courses, consider your major options, and to get academic support throughout your first few years here. Here are just a few of the advisers you might meet in September, talking about the first advising conversations you’ll have with them!
As Director of Studies at Rockefeller College, I work closely with first years and sophomores, overseeing their academic progress and advising. Before joining the staff at Rocky, I was a fellowship adviser here at Princeton, and before that, I founded and directed the undergraduate research program at Rutgers, where I also worked for eight years as Assistant Dean for Sophomores and Associate Director of the Honors Program. I grew up in New Jersey, attended UCLA for my Masters’ in English Literature (where I studied the literature of marginalized groups in the U.S.), and returned to the Garden State for my doctoral degree in the Sociology and Philosophy of Education (Ed.D.), and I love thinking about higher education through a philosophical lens. I live in Hopewell with my husband and two young children, whom you may meet on campus. Though my work and family keep me busy, I can also be found out for a run, stealing a quiet moment in a yoga class, or trolling local farmer’s markets for seasonal produce.
