About Me

As the regional admissions associate for northeastern North Carolina, I am thrilled to, once again, be associated with the undergraduate admissions office at the University of South Carolina. From 1996 until 2005, I was an associate director on the Columbia campus. Now I work part-time in Edenton. I enjoy working closely with the students in my area and in my native North Carolina.

I did my undergraduate work at Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina and have a master's degree from Duke University. I have been in the college admissions profession since 1984 at a variety of different institutions in North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina. Because of my work experience, I believe that I have a broad perspective that is valuable to prospective students, their parents, and high school counselors.

Throughout my association with USC, I have been proud of all that the university, its students and faculty have accomplished. The combination of our academic programs, world-class faculty, engaged students, and ideal location create an experience that is hard to beat. I look forward to sharing all that we have to offer with you!
