Chester Springs, Pennsylvania
I earned a BA in Geography from Dartmouth College in 1987 and studied away in Kenya my junior year. I have an MA in (Economic) Geography from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I completed a thesis on the location and geographic diffusion of small business incubators in the U.S.
I grew up on a small, non-working farm in Pennsylvania. I worked in Admissions at Dartmouth for two years post graduation and worked in the Dean’s Office at Carnegie Mellon University for two years and directed the Residential Life Program there for three years. I started at Bowdoin in July 1996 as the Dean of First-Year Students. I am an obsessive-compulsive Red Sox fan, outdoor enthusiast, vegetable gardener, antique collector, and the father of two and spouse of one!
I graduated from Bowdoin in 1998 with a major in Government and a minor in Spanish. I also have a Master’s in Education from Harvard and my J.D. from the University of Maine School of Law.
For much of the time that I was growing up I lived in Nashua, NH, but when I was in high school I moved to Connecticut. When I was a student at Bowdoin I began to realize I might want to work in higher education through my involvement on the Res Life staff and some other student leadership opportunities. I have spent a good portion of my professional life at Bowdoin, but I also have worked at Harvard and Tufts in addition to practicing law and working in politics and public policy. I LOVE living in Maine and am eager to help students explore the Brunswick and Portland areas.
I have a BA in Social Relations & Psychology from Lehigh University; an MA in Social Relations & Counseling from Lehigh University and a PhD in Sociology from the UMass, Amherst.
I have spent a number of years as a faculty member, most recently in Soc/Anthro at Bowdoin where I taught courses in Criminology, Gender & Race & Ethnic Relations. I continue to engage in my research on women offenders and participate in a number of statewide committees on this topic. I moved to Maine in 2002 and live in Yarmouth with my husband and three children.
New York, NY
I earned a B.A. from Wesleyan University in 2002 where I majored in Latin American Studies with a concentration in Government. In 2005 I earned a J.D. from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
I was born in East Harlem, NY (El Barrio), and raised primarily in a suburb an hour north NYC before returning to El Barrio after college. I have always had an interest in working toward social justice, to help empower underrepresented people. During law school I worked for The Legal Aid Society and the Innocence Project. Before coming to Bowdoin, I worked as a public defender in the Bronx for five years. I now reside in Brunswick with my husband Brian, and three small children, Isabella, Gabriel and Lillian. In the remaining free time, I enjoy running, which has replaced my first love, martial arts. Over the years I have studied Karate and Shaolin Kung Fu.

I have a BA in Media Studies/Politics from Pomona College and a M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration from Harvard University.
After graduating from Pomona, I spent three years working at a small college outside Boston before returning to my alma mater as the Associate Dean of Campus Life. Outside of work, I like to spend as much time as possible with my husband, Josh and children, Nathan (age 7) and Sadie (age 4.5) and Eliza (age 1.5).
St. Louis, Missouri
I earned an A.B. in History from Bowdoin and a M.Ed. in Higher Education from Harvard University.
I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and attended Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School. After graduating from Bowdoin, I taught History at Worcester Academy. In addition to teaching at Worcester, I supported several culturally based student organizations and coached football and track. I left Worcester Academy to attend Harvard and earn my M.Ed. After Harvard, I moved to Austin, TX, where I worked as an Assistant Director of Student Life at a small university. In that role I led the Multicultural and Diversity Affairs functional area of the Student Life Office. I now reside in Brunswick, with my wife and our young son.
Bowdoin College A.B. Class of 2006 – double major in French and English & Theater
Born and raised in central Maine, I grew up surrounded by trees, fields, animals and five siblings. While at Bowdoin, I studied abroad in Paris for a year, participated in numerous performing arts groups, and was a two-time Proctor on the Res Life staff. Since graduation I have traveled to Boston, Paris, Cape Cod, Arizona, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania while pursuing a stage acting career. I now reside in Portland.
I graduated from Brunswick High School in Brunswick, Maine
I was born in Naha, Okinawa, the daughter of an Air Force father and one of eight children. I had the opportunity to live both stateside and overseas. I then married a man in the Navy, and continued my adventures of moving around and living in many different states. I worked in the banking field for over 20 years until I decided to make a career change. At Bowdoin I have worked in Dining and Admissions and I’m thrilled to now be working in the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs. My husband and I have two wonderful grown children, a son who lives in Brunswick and a daughter who lives in Saitama, Japan plus our boxer Pazel.
