About Me: I have worked in higher ed in a variety of roles at a handful of universities, and I'm very happy to make UofSC my home. I'm a lifelong learner, forever curious about the social and natural worlds. A big-time animal lover, my current cuddle buddy is my flame point Siamese. I enjoy cycling and kayaking around Columbia. 

Favorite Quote: "Be good." E.T.

Advice to Students: Study abroad! Feel a little vulnerable, expand your mind, connect, (eat!). Humanity is so complex and beautiful - go out there and experience it!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
