Katie holds office hours for 20-min slots in the House Office on weekday afternoons. These can be signed up for here: 20min OHs in the House Office.
I’m thrilled to be joining the Leverett House community with my children Jack (age 9) and Avery (age 5) as well as our labradoodle Millie. You’re sure to find us running around the courtyards or exploring the various neighborhoods in Cambridge.
I received my BA from Columbia University in English & Comparative Literature, my MA from Columbia University Teachers College in Psychology in Education, and my PhD from Boston College in English Literature. As a teacher and researcher, I focus on 20th – 21st century American literature with a specialty in immigration. I write about the ways in which narratives (fiction, nonfiction, and film) both reflect and influence political policies and social change. As a professor, I work to create courses that are interdisciplinary, engaging, and unique. I meet my students at their individual points of interest, which is how I also approach my role as your ABRD.
Some days I’ll be your coach, some days I’ll be your mentor, and some days I’ll be your counselor – all depending on what you need. My educational path was nontraditional and included a significant break, my professional roles have ranged from film production to cancer research coordination, and I spent the past four years at the United States Military Academy at West Point as a professor and Dean. My blend of experiences that have helped widen my view of higher education (and the world) and equipped me with tools to assist in your development as undergraduates. I’m here to engage with you on issues big and small, so please never hesitate to book an appointment to come see me. My goal is to help each of you find your way through your educational journey so that we can all celebrate your successes and ambitions.
Hello Lev! I am so excited to be part of the Leverett Resident Dean's office. I work very closely with Katie, and you can find me right outside his office on the first floor of F tower. I am here to support you in all sorts of ways, such as reminding you about upcoming deadlines, processing academic forms, and answering questions about registration, enrollment, ad board petitions, and letters of recommendation. I look forward to helping you navigate your way through the policies and processes of the College, and hope you are having a positive undergraduate experience here at Leverett. My door is always open, and I welcome you to stop by anytime to chat about anything on your mind!
Hello to the Leverett community! I am so happy to finally be here and call Leverett House my new home! You can find me in my office, which is F-5 on the first floor of the F tower. I work in the same space as Katie and Kim!
I am coming from a marketing role in Professional Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, with knowledge on relationship management, social media content creation, and some email marketing! During my undergraduate summers, I worked at Yale (the enemy!!!) in their summer residential programming office, and really missed the feel of working in a residential college. I found myself wanting to work in this environment again because of the endless opportunities to meet and connect with students and faculty.
I received my BA from the University of Connecticut, and I am currently working on a master’s in educational studies at Tufts University (part-time). As the House Administrator I manage student housing concerns, house events, and house finances. I work very closely with Brian and Irina, the Resident and Non-Resident Tutors, the HoCo Chairs, and the Dining Team to coordinate all activities and events Leverett-House related.
Outside of work and school, I love showing people my pug named Kirby (and his Instagram account!), exploring the food-scene in the Boston/Cambridge area with my friends, traveling, going to spin classes at The Handle Bar, watching romantic comedies from the early 2000s, and spending time with my partner Roddy, who teaches English at the Taft School in Connecticut. We like to go on weekend hikes and cook elaborate dinners!
I am here to support you and have an open-door policy. I am looking forward to being a part of your college experience. Come say hi and we can chat about all the things!
