About Me: I started as a Pre-Pharmacy major and quickly realized that Biology was not for me! I was a student employee during my undergraduate career that led to my first job with a University of South Carolina System campus. I have been employed by the University ever since! I am an avid Gamecock fan, and I love spending my Saturdays at Williams Brice. I love to travel and spending time with my two dogs and seven godchildren. 

Favorite Quote: Success is not built on success. It's built on failure. It's built on frustration. Sometimes it's built on catastrophe. 

Advice to Students: Always dress like its the best day of your life!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
