As Director of Benefits Administration, I am responsible for all facets of the employee benefits program at the College, which includes creating, evaluating, and administering the various benefits that cover faculty and staff. Although my career initially began in property & casualty insurance, I was fortunate enough to make the career switch to human resources and stay in this field for over 25 years. Outside of Haverford, I enjoy playing guitar, listening to all types of music (especially jazz and Steely Dan), reading, exercising, and spending time with family. I am also an admirer and follower of all things astronomy/astrophysics related, and have taken a couple of astronomy classes over the years at a previous university. I am very proud to be currently associated with a college that has such a robust and well-respected astrophysics program. Fun fact: our dog - Cooper - is half-brother to the former Lafayette College provost's dog.
