I am an alumna of East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. I was born and raised in the Indianapolis area until I moved to North Carolina as a teenager. I stayed in the south through college and the early years of my career path at various institutions of higher education. My master’s degree is in counselor education, and my love of student employment came from working in housing and residence life for many years. I was always involved in recruiting, selecting, and training resident assistants. During my free time, I am an avid Mickey Mouse fan and always have an annual trip to Disney World! I love to spend time with family, make crafts, and enjoy time on the beach or waterfront.
