About Me: Hello from The University of South Carolina! I am originally from Indiana, and have lived in Kentucky and North Carolina before finding my way to Columbia. I am an alum of Guilford College (B.S. '15) and South Carolina (M.Ed. '17). I am excited to have the opportunity to work with the very talented and awesome students at USC everyday, and love being a Gamecock! I enjoy sports, reading, history, and of course, eating whenever possible.

Advice to Students: Don't just learn the facts; learn to think. Be always curious; not always cramming. Offer questions and critiques; not complaints. If you can't get out of something, get into it.
