On working in Admissions at FSC

I love working in admissions at FSC because my own time as an undergraduate shaped the person I am today, and I’m honored to be a part of helping students through the college admissions process.

Something surprising about me

I have lived on four continents. As a child, I lived in Australia, Japan, Hungary, and all over the U.S. Before coming to Lakeland, I lived in Reading, England, for graduate school.


I enjoy trying to make artisanal recipes and accidentally burning them because I was listening to an audiobook.

Favorite Movies/TV Shows/Books

Right now, I’m into Jordan Peele films and quirky sci-fi shows like The Umbrella Academy, but Brooklyn-Nine-Nine will always have a special spot in my heart. I read a lot, especially young adult, and my current favorite authors are TJ Klune, Becky Albertalli, and Tiffany D. Jackson.

The Perfect Saturday

My perfect Saturday includes a thick book, a strong cup of coffee, and a hot muffin.

Favorite Restaurant

Pho Tan! It’s a nice familyowned restaurant only a few miles from campus. I recommend the house special pho.
