About Undergraduate Admissions

What brought you to VCU?

I’ve lived in Richmond all of my life. After I graduated from college, I returned home to be with family and friends. VCU seemed like a natural transition for me right after college because I was so used to being in a collegiate environment.

Name three adjectives that describe Undergraduate Admissions.

Goal-oriented, busy and comfortable

What do you enjoy most about meeting prospective VCU students?

I love having prospective students share their goals and dreams with me while I share what VCU has to offer to help them achieve those aspirations.

Best part of your job:

What I enjoy most is hearing the excitement in a prospective student’s voice after they’ve been notified that they are being offered admission into VCU.

What’s your favorite place on campus?

Definitely the Barnes & Noble @ VCU store. What can I say, I love to shop!

About me

What don’t most people know about you?

I would like to try out for a roller derby league, but I’m not too sure I’m tough enough for that and I bruise really easily.

What are you reading right now?

“The Notebook,” by Nicholas Sparks

What’s your perfect Sunday afternoon?

The perfect Sunday afternoon would be Mother’s Day. My entire family always gathers together at a relative’s home in Hanover County for a huge dinner. It’s always great to be around my family for great food, fun and fellowship.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I went through so many phases. To name a few, I wanted to be a painter/artist, stockbroker, makeup artist for celebrities and an elementary school teacher.

What do you order at Starbucks?

I love white chocolate mochas with a shot of vanilla.
