Hello, my name is Valentina. I am originally from central New Jersey. I earned a BA in Philosophy & Italian Studies at Emory University. After graduation, I worked in New Orleans for four years in the non-profit sector. I moved to Houston in 2016 where I began working at UH's Bauer College of Business in Admissions & Recruitment and later as a Graduate Advisor. During this time I earned my M.Ed. in Higher Education from UH. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing board games, and solving crossword puzzles. I'm so happy to be here at Rice and look forward to working with you!
