Hometown: Born in Valdosta, GA at Moody Air Force Base into a military family, however, I consider my home Dalzell, SC where my parents are both retired.
Education: B.A., Winthrop University; M.Ed., University of Georgia; Ed.D., Northeastern University
About Me: I have worked in academic advising more than 15 years. My experience includes both academic and career advising. I am a 3rd generation college student. My grandmother was a teacher and the first in my family to attend college. Right now I am into thrifting, trying new restaurants, and listening to podcasts. My favorite thing about TWU is that we are an institution whose primary focus is the education of women. Our motto, “Educate a Woman. Empower the world,” is a constant source of inspiration.

About Me: I have been part of the advising community for almost nine years. I began my advising career at UNT where I advised for four years, then advised for one year at TWU before becoming a Coordinator of College Academic Advising. My main hobby is currently school! But aside from that, I enjoy playing with my 2 pit bulls, traveling, camping, and fitness. One of my favorite quotes is, "The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness." – John Muir. Exploring the outdoors quiets my mind and seems to take me into another world. It is my favorite form of stress relief.
