Hi everyone! I am a San Diego native who has been "just visiting" the East Coast ever since I stepped onto Harvard's campus as a member of the Class of 2012. I graduated from the Graduate School of Education last year, and I currently work as an Assistant Director in the Harvard Varsity Club. In my spare time, I like participating in recreational sports and running along the Charles River, creating art for my Etsy store, and hosting friends for dinners and parties. I live with my partner, Jon Rossi, and together we enjoy traveling to warm places, watching cooking shows, and exploring Boston. We look forward to welcoming you to Harvard!

Hello and welcome! A desert child at heart, at 18 I left my hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico for the rural Midwest to attend school at Grinnell College in Iowa. After spending four years running around cornfields with the cross country team and admiring the prairie sky I traveled to a small village in Nepal to work as an English teacher with preschool to seventh graders for a year. Upon returning to the States I couldn't resist the familiar pull of the Midwest and made Chicago my home. I just finished my masters degree at Harvard Divinity School last spring and work as a lead CARE proctor with OSAPR here at Harvard. I love to be outside and hope to continue exploring the beauty of the Northeast this year. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and hearing your stories!

Welcome to the community, y’all! I was born and raised in the rural South and earned my B.A. at the University of Virginia. After college, I moved to Jamaica Plain for an educational fellowship and then came to Cambridge to earn my Ed.M. in Human Development and Psychology here at Harvard. I am currently a Senior Assistant Director of Admissions at Harvard Law School and have also served as a Teaching Fellow for the Government Department. Although I miss the warmth, good (read: spicy, greasy, and fried) food, and pace of life down South, Cambridge is an awesome place to be. Looking forward to having y’all join the community here!

Hi! Welcome to the best entryway in the Yard! I'm a ninth-year doctoral student (A.B.D., which means "all but dissertation") in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, where I study medieval Arabic-language intellectual history. Beyond my time in academia, I've worked at a quantitative hedge fund, run a community art gallery, changed oil and rotated tires, and joyfully tortured students as a high school math teacher. I also have a degree in visual arts, and like to build moderately useful things out of wood. My wife Monica serves as a proctor alongside me, and we are very much looking forward to getting to know all of you! Also, we have a dog (JoJo the Crazed Husky mix), and she is very happy to provide free pet therapy in exchange for being allowed to lick your face and/or take you for walks.

Welcome Class of 2022! I am incredibly excited to meet all of you this year. My name is Monica and this is my fifth year working with first-year students. I have spent my first three years in Holworthy and moved to Canaday last year with my wife Lispeth. We share our home with JoJo, who is a magical mix of awesomeness.

I grew up in a small farm town in northern Indiana. I received my BS in Sociology and Political Science from the University of Southern Indiana and my Master's in City & Regional Planning from The Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture. After grad school, I initially moved to Boston to work for the MBTA, and I am now the Executive Director of a transportation & urban design company, as well as sitting on the Boards of both MassDOT and the MBTA. I spend most of my free time designing & collecting toys, making maps, and binge-watching shows about game wardens.
