My favorite part of my job is demystifying college admissions for our guests and helping students realize their life should not be defined by where they go to college, but what they do while they are there.

If I weren’t an admissions director, I would be a speech-language pathologist, archeologist, or rabbit rescuer.

When travelling in my recruitment territory, I like to perfect my skill of eating and reading while driving.
