I am a Richmond native and attended VCU from 2004-08. I recently returned to give back to the university that I love and that has inspired me.
A planner, my high def camera/video recorder and lots of snacks
The best part of my job is getting a chance to interact with people everyday and by helping them in the college admissions process. I enjoy being a part of assisting people in reaching their educational goals and pursuing their lifelong dreams.
The University Student Commons — Breakpoint Game Room, the Office of Student Multicultural Affairs and the Commons Theater. I also love the video editing bays in the Temple Building.
