Where are you from?

Lakeland, FL

Educational Background

Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration from FSC!

What do you enjoy most about working at Florida Southern?

During my time as a student, I was a Southern Ambassador/ tour guide. Connecting with prospective students and families was my favorite part of college. I am super excited to come back to FSC to continue that as an admissions counselor.

What would be a perfect Saturday?

I enjoy heading downtown to Lakeland’s weekly farmers market. After the market I’ll grab coffee and lunch at Black & Brew.

What about hobbies or outside interests?

I love a good escape room! I also love to travel. My husband and I recently went on a long trip to Europe and explored Italy and Germany!

Do you have any favorite music/books/TV shows?

I love Disney Pixar movies, reality TV like The Bachelor, and dramas like Grey’s Anatomy. I will pretty much watch anything. Netflix and Hulu are my best friends.

What is your favorite campus tradition?

I absolutely love Southern Select. Everyone is so excited to get to know campus and their intended area of study. I also enjoy getting to know accepted students and their families more at the event!

What is something surprising about me?

I have a pet leopard gecko named Randy.
