What are your responsibilities at the Keller Center?
As Associate Director of Outreach and Administration, I manage Keller Center’s internship programs including the Princeton Startup Immersion Program (PSIP), with locations in Tel Aviv, Shanghai and New York City. Students may contact me for information regarding application, deadlines, housing, stipends, and visas related to PSIP. Additionally, I oversee Keller Center’s budgets, financial and staffing plans and serve as Center-wide resource on matters related to financial management, business operations and communications.
What attracted you to the Keller Center?
While preparing for my interview with Keller Center, I wanted to familiarize myself with the Center’s programs and offerings. I watched videos of Keller Center’s speakers like Brian O’Kelley, speaking on “The Evolution of a Startup CEO”, and Keller’s faculty John Danner, Chris Kuenne and Derek Lidow, in a panel discussion on “Is Entrepreneurship a Realistic Option After Princeton?” I also read student program testimonials of life-changing experiences. I decided working among the thoughtful faculty and staff that make up the Keller team that produces these programs would be an awesomely gratifying experience and I was so right!
