Grace brings 25 years of residence life experience to her role as Director of Residence Life. After graduating from the University of Michigan, she spent several years at The College of William and Mary in Virginia where she earned her M.A. Ed. and worked as a Residence Life professional. She has been at Lafayette since 1998 and assumed the responsibilities of department director in September 2009. She has served in various leadership positions for the Mid-Atlantic Association of College and University Housing Officers (MACUHO), including president, and the Association of College and University Housing Officers-International (ACUHO-I). Outside of work, Grace enjoys following her favorite sports teams (the Michigan Wolverines and the New York Mets), reading good books, walks with her dog Cosmo, and spending time with family and friends (especially if it’s at the shore!).
