A fun fact about me is: I inherited my family’s ancestral home on the top of a volcano in Greece.
My favorite part of my job is: Building connections between students, alumni and employers.
An internship/experiential opportunity that helped shape my career path: I worked as a peer academic adviser in the dean’s office during college. This is where I became interested in the career services field because students would often ask me about the connection between majors and careers. I also worked full-time in commission sales for Shiseido cosmetics to pay for my college tuition. I received training in marketing, communication skills and image consulting—all skills I’ve used throughout my career.
The best single day on my calendar is: Commencement Day at Princeton is one of my favorite days of the year. I serve as a University marshal for this event and truly enjoy celebrating students’ accomplishments with their families. The day is both a day for reflection on how much they have grown and the relationships they’ve made here—and a time of exciting new beginnings.
I could give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation on: All things LinkedIn! How to use it for job seeking, networking, thought-leadership and professional development.
