About Me

I am so excited to be representing the University of South Carolina to all of my northern New Jersey students! In 2012, I earned my bachelor’s degree in communication studies from Texas Tech University. It was during my time in college that I realized how your college choice can have such a meaningful impact on the trajectory of your life. After graduating, I spent over four years as a representative in the Texas Tech Office of Admissions working with students and families on the college admissions process. In 2017 I moved to New Jersey with my family and have loved exploring the Northeast ever since!

As someone who traveled over 500 miles to attend college, I understand what it’s like to trade in the familiarity of home and start a new adventure in a brand new place. My advice for prospective students is to be open to any and all possibilities, whether it’s the college you choose to attend or how you make the most of your time while you’re there. Take a chance, visit our campus, and you may discover that it is everything you have been looking for!

With so many exciting things happening on the UofSC campus, I hope to share with you how remarkable Gamecock Nation can be.  The students and alumni of this university are so passionate about their school because it has offered them incredible experiences and lifelong memories, both inside and outside of the classroom.  What starts here, echoes everywhere! 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
