About Me

I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1998 with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communications. I was the first student from my high school in Toledo, Ohio to attend USC, and now I am excited to see our popularity continuously increasing each year in the Midwest! My background lies in event management, sales, fund development, and education. The knowledge, experience and incredible opportunities that I acquired in my years at USC paved the way for my career success. 

I have countless ‘favorite’ college memories, but some that stand out are: competing in intramural sports, attending Gamecock athletic events (especially football games), and sitting 4th row on the grass of the beautiful Historic Horseshoe to watch Hootie and The Blowfish perform a concert for the MTV Unplugged series. The USC-Columbia campus is a special place. It is where I met friends that, to this day, I consider some of the most important people in my life. I am proud to represent the University of South Carolina in Chicago, and I look forward to talking with you about how truly great it is to be a Gamecock!
