It is a pleasure to be a part of the CCPA team and the Haverford community. Before joining the CCPA as the Programming and Communications Coordinator, I graduated from Smith College with a BA in religion and Buddhist studies. I was a four-year varsity field hockey player and captain. During my sophomore year, I studied abroad in India at the Central University of Tibetan Studies as a part of the Tibetan Studies in India Program (TSIP). Professionally, I have held several positions including a Teaching Assistant for a Buddhist Studies course at Smith College, a student coordinator for the TSIP, an enrollment coach at Montgomery County Community College, and an editorial intern for the Greater Boston Zen Center and Wisdom Publications.
