Assistant Director of Financial Aid Advising

Rebecca joined the SFS team in 2018, serving first as a member of the outreach team before transitioning into an advising role. Currently, Rebecca is the assigned advisor for current and prospective undergraduate students with last names beginning with AAA through CAN. Before coming to Hopkins, Rebecca got her start in financial aid in her hometown of Rochester, New York, at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, and previously worked at Northeastern University in Boston.

My Advice to Students: Take school seriously, but not too seriously. Getting into a university like JHU is a huge achievement, and you absolutely want to get as much as you can out of the experience, but that means more than just getting the best grades you can. Make time for day trips into D.C., find friends who are completely different from you, sign up for a class that has nothing to do with your major, and take a walk over to Hampden to get some weird ice cream at The Charmery! The things that happen outside the classroom during college matter just as much as those that happen in it.
