Through these pages you can get to know the various Student Success Commons team members who are here to help you throughout your time at YCCC.



Hi everyone! My name is Austin and I'm looking forward to meeting all of you!

I've been working in higher education since 2019. I graduated with my master's in higher education at New England College, where I studied retention and attainment for community college students as well as transfer pathways to four-year institutions.

When not at work, I can be found cooking in my kitchen, writing science fiction novels, and paddleboarding in the many bodies of water around Seacoast NH and Southern Maine.





NTHI - Concord's Community College (attended 2010-2012)
University of New Hampshire - Bachelor of Arts in Journalism/Creative Writing (graduated 2014)
New England College - Master of Science in Higher Education Administration (graduated 2022)




As a student journalist at the University of New Hampshire, I had the opportunity to interview dozens of fascinating people. One of the most interesting subjects was speaking with Giorgio Tsoukalos from Ancient Aliens when he gave a lecture at UNH in 2012. After his lecture, we had dinner in Portsmouth and saw the first The Avengers in a movie theater!
