“My favorite part of working in admission would have to be the travel component. Being able to see the country—and in some cases the world—while encouraging students to continue their education combines two of the things I am most passionate about in life.”

A Little Bit About Me
I am a fanatic of all-things volleyball. Coaching, watching, and playing. Whether it be indoor, sand, or grass; if I’m not working, I’m most likely on the volleyball court. Second to volleyball, I love tennis. My favorites include Caroline Wozniacki, Roger Federer, and the G.O.A.T. Serena Williams!
