Proactive Adviser/Academic Success Coach, Advising Center
Sutherland, 214

Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, I have recently returned to the region from Los Angeles. I started my professional career in mental health counseling, working at an underserved community mental health facility and with individuals in the criminal justice system. Years later, I moved to Los Angeles to work in music, tv, and film, including interning at a major record label and working at a major Hollywood movie studio before spending over a decade at an entertainment immigration firm where I served as a senior executive. I am so incredibly excited to join the Penn State Abington Advising team and look forward to assisting students with pursuing their academic, professional, and personal goals.
