Graduate Admissions
About Heather

I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2012 with a BA in Sociology. While obtaining my undergraduate degree, I worked for the University’s Center for Community Engagement managing various non-profit projects across campus and the local community. I was also a member of the Sociological Honor Society and Habitat for Humanity’s Willimantic Chapter during my Junior and Senior year.

After graduating, I went on to work in the wine industry managing a local distributor here in West Haven, CT. After 5 years, I decided it was time to return to something I was passionate about and knew higher education was where I belonged! I was given the opportunity to work for the Office of Graduate Admissions in 2017, and couldn’t be happier. I am also currently pursuing my MBA here and the encouragement of experiential learning and being involved with the campus community is what excited me the most. While I am not working or studying, I try to find time to rock climb and hike! I highly encourage those looking to obtain their Master’s here to utilize the campus resources available and get involved with the community to receive the most the University of New Haven can offer!
