Weymouth, MA

Educational background

Bachelor of Arts in History from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. Master of Education in Higher Education Administration from Northeastern University in Boston, MA. Currently enrolled in the Master of Education in Educational Leadership at Florida Southern College (expected graduation date is Winter of 2022). 

What do you enjoy most about working in FSC’s Office of Admissions?:

Before working in the Office of Admissions - I worked as a high school teacher, teaching juniors & seniors US History and Government. I always encouraged them by telling them once you find a college campus to call home - you just know it. It's that feeling in your heart that you get to call your own for the next four years. Now, I get that warm feeling every time I step foot on this campus, here at Florida Southern! 

Do you have a favorite spot on campus?:

The Polk Museum of Art at Florida Southern College! It's one of our hidden gems, which is located two blocks north of our campus and is one of handful Smithsonian-Affiliated art museums within the state of Florida. You can always find world-class exhibits on display and they just announced a new expansion of 13,000 square feet with construction happening soon!  

Do you have any favorite music, books, and TV shows?:

From the Below Deck series on Bravo to Big Brother! You can always find me with a Harry Potter book on the beach if you can't find me in the office! 

What would be a perfect Saturday?:

If it's not snuggling with our miniature schnauzer (whose name is Wilkie) on the couch - you can find us exploring any of the Disney theme parks! If you can - get a theme park annual pass (there are so many to choose from in our area) - and only visit for a few hours, then you can always go back for more in the future.  

What is your favorite local restaurant?:

Harry's Seafood in downtown Lakeland is my favorite restaurant! In all of my years living in Lakeland, I've never had a disappointing meal. Save room for dessert because their Oreo beignets are out of this world! 

What is something surprising about you?:

One of my first careers after finishing my undergraduate studies is that I worked for Disney and then became a flight attendant for a major US airline.
