Assistant Director of Student Financial Services

What makes Emmanuel different from other colleges?
Emmanuel offers a one-of-a-kind experience--a vibrant and inclusive community located in a major city. With friendly faces all around, Emmanuel offers the comfort of a small school along with the perks of living in Boston.

What is one Boston activity you recommend for students?
I highly recommend students take advantage of all the discounts allotted to them across the city. The Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is FREE with your college I.D. so these are two must do activities!

What tips do you have for students when it comes to financial aid and/or payment options?
Pro tip #1-stay involved! Finances can be an overwhelming topic for many students, but the more actively involved you are in the process, the better prepared you will be. Take the time to build upon your financial literacy- explore your options, ask questions, and don't forget to check your email!

What do you like most about working in the OSFS?
As a student affairs professional, developing meaningful relationships with students and their families is what drives the work I do. Working in OSFS, I appreciate getting to maintain these relationships and advocate for students and their families all the way through to graduation.
