About Me: I've traveled to Europe 3 times, including an internship in England. I'm terrified of balloons. I've seen Bruce Springsteen in concert 12 times. In my Junior year of my undergraduate degree I changed my major from Chemistry to History. Anything is possible in the world of Major Change! I used to be a Study Abroad advisor and lived in Idaho before coming to the University of South Carolina.

Areas of Expertise: Major Change Advising; Advocating for Education Abroad experiences; Identifying Bruce Springsteen songs within the first 5 seconds of play

Favorite Quote:  "To hold truth inviolable, sincerity essential, kindness invaluable"- Alpha Gamma Delta purpose

Advice to Students: The Carolina Core is a marathon not a sprint. It doesn't get completed in just one semester. You're likely not as far "behind" as you think you are.

Involvement in Carolina Community: Advisor to the Theta Omega chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta
