About Me: I am a seventh-generation South Carolinian. I love being outside; woods, beach, mountains, does not matter! I am married with two adult children. My daughter graduated from USC, too. I have a horse, three dogs and two cats, and live on a little farm in Little Mountain. I have worked in higher education for over 20 years, fulfilling my passion of working with students.

Favorite Quote: "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!"  -Audrey Hepburn
