About Me: I am a native South Carolinian and am proud to call this great state home! While I did not receive my undergraduate degree from USC, I still consider myself a lifetime Gamecock. I grew up attending Carolina football, basketball, and baseball games and still enjoy spending my Saturdays at any of these events! Carolina is a family affair for me; I am one of five family members employed at USC. I love college football, the beach, reading a good book and spending time with family and friends. 

Favorite Quote: "It’s difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” - Anne Frank

Advice to Students: Don't spend your time wishing away the day or week. These four years will go by so quickly, so enjoy every second and don't forget to be in the moment. The time will soon come when you will want these years back!
