The goal of this initiative is to highlight the diversity of backgrounds and perspectives in the Undergraduate Program in Digital Media Studies and help our community develop stronger connections and synergies. You can think of these spotlights as the beginning of a conversation that we very much hope you will continue in real life.
Undergraduate Program Coordinator
What is your favorite part of working at UR?
I really enjoy hearing about students’ ideas, problems, successes, and failures. My undergraduate experience was overwhelmingly positive. I want to pay it forward.
What are you most proud of in your career so far?
Getting hired by UR, hands-down. The River Campus Library staff is full of incredibly talented people, and I’m honored to be one of them.
What are your plans after graduation?
I’m currently in the process of trying to get a full-time offer to be a UX/UI Designer, preferably in the entertainment industry.
Fun fact or quote:
“Wildly succeed or gloriously fail – have fun while you do it and keep learning!”, from a mentor.
What is your degree?
I have a double major in digital media studies and psychology from the University of Rochester and an MS in human centered design and engineering from the University of Washington.
Human Resources Business Partner
What has your career path been like?
If you told me I’d be working in HR back at UR I wouldn’t have believed you. I originally moved to China to teach English and travel, but I ended up falling in love with the country and started working in recruitment with my first company.
Why did you choose DMS?
Here I can collaborate, learn from, and co-design prototypes that allow me to explore my full potential and step out of my comfort zone.
