My passion for working with prospective students started in Collegiate Athletics. With a B.S. in Sport Management and M.S. in Park, Recreation, Tourism and Sport Management, the football industry caught my interest early in my career. It is through recruiting prospective athletes that I learned how much I enjoyed helping students pursue their educational goals and decided to shift my focus to the academic side.
What I love most about UNC Charlotte is the opportunity it provides for our students. Through on-campus resources and community partnerships, this University encourages students to gain experiential learning during their Undergraduate career.

I’ve spent the last 20 years working with students and families as they navigate the college admissions process. I love helping students find a path that’s the perfect fit for them. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the students that I’ve worked with during the admissions process arrive on campus excited to begin their studies with us!
My favorite thing about UNC Charlotte is the beauty of our campus and seeing how much it’s grown during my 10 years here!
