Wilkes has created and given me so many opportunities to become involved on campus such as working with Student Development in the E-Mentor Program, working two summers doing research with various biology faculty, and lastly being the captain of the golf team for the past two seasons.

I am president of the Nursing Organization, Resident Assistant (RA), e-Mentor, Programming Board Community Service Chair, and I am a lead ambassador in the admissions office. If you need a work study I am your guy. I look forward to interacting with all of you and making your next four years at Wilkes the best it can be.

A little bit about me: I was born and raised my whole life in Allentown, PA before coming to Wilkes! Since my house is an hour away from school, I stayed on campus for the past two years; however, I will be living in an off-campus apartment this year.  I'm currently the President of the Wilkes Ultimate Frisbee team, Treasurer of Wilkes SAE Mini Baja, a Wilkes Adventure Education Facilitator and Commuter Council's Parliamentarian. I have made some of my greatest memories and met many of my best friends through these extracurricular activities and I highly encourage you to become as involved on campus as possible!
