In her role as the Associate Director, Kristin is responsible for the Residential Education efforts of the office, including but not limited to the recruitment, selection, and training of Resident Assistant and professional staff, and the oversight of office programming and engagement efforts. Students may interact with her regularly as she also provides indirect oversight of the residence halls in her supervision of the two full-time Resident Directors. Kristin additionally serves as the liaison to the Hancock Village Townhouses.

Kristin most enjoys her work interacting with students in need of additional support, as identified by other campus partners, and helping their experience as a residential student improve. She additionally loves the training and development aspect of both the RA and professional staff. Kristin has enjoyed the opportunity to teach CC101 as a way to connect with students outside of her typical role.

Kristin has been at Mount Ida College for six years in both the Associate Director role and as the Assistant Director for Residential Education. Prior to Mount Ida, Kristin also worked in Residence Life at both Stonehill College and Lasell College. Kristin has volunteered with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center and served on the Steering Board for the Boston Area College Housing Association for several years.

Kristin works with residential students specifically to ensure that their transition to living on campus is a good experience and that they are able to get the most out of their extracurricular education while here. Kristin consistently evaluates the responsibility of the Resident Assistant position and the scope of their training as well as the residential education offerings for students in order to help create the living environment most conducive to student success.

Kristin has received recognition for her work with both BARCC and BACHA and was given a Women’s Professional Leadership Award from Mount Ida in 2013.

I work with residential students specifically to ensure that their transition to living on campus is a good experience and that they are able to get the most out of their extracurricular education while here.
