I have worked in undergraduate admissions in Tennessee for several years, and believe I have found my niche in higher education. I have close family in the area, so when an opportunity became available at VCU, I researched the university and jumped at the chance to become part of the VCU team.
Busy, dynamic, important
When I am able to help them pursue their educational goals, I am rewarded with the knowledge that I am also helping the future leaders of world. It’s pretty amazing!
My iPad, a paperback and far too many shoes
A printed map. I am a little old-school.
I am a politics junkie.
Since I don’t have any classes currently, for fun I’m reading Ken Follett.
Football, food and family
I thought I wanted to be an attorney. Looking back, I think I am happier with the career path I ended up taking.
