About Me: I am a First-Generation college student, Third-Generation Irish American, and a New Yorker no matter where I receive my mail. I value authenticity above all else. My passion lies in the research and resources provided through higher education policy and both domestic and international comparative higher education.  This helps explain why my YouTube history is filled with House Education and the Workforce Committee hearings. Combining my passion and value is what makes me committed to helping students take ownership of their own academic career. Each advising session represents that “decisions are made by those who show up.” Aaron Sorkin may have said it, but I put it into practice.

Advice to Students: Remember, this is your life and you are the author.
