Educational Background

Bachelor of Science in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication from Florida Southern College. Currently enrolled in the MBA Graduate program at FSC (expected graduation date Summer of 2022).

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

As a former educator, I enjoy sharing my passion for education and my passion for my alma mater with students and their families during their college search journey.

Do you have a favorite spot on campus?

My favorite spot on campus is the grassy knoll near the Centennial Tower. When I discovered this part of campus years back, I knew I was at home when I looked up and saw the beautiful cross.

What about hobbies or outside interests?

I enjoy working out, reading, the beach, and traveling to big cities.

Favorite Book

It is hard to name just one book, The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, Where the Crawdads Sing, Seven Splendid Suns, and Rivers’ Bridge to Haven are among my favorites.

Any favorite restaurants or hangouts in Lakeland?

Black & Brew, Frescos, and Purple Onion are my favorites!

Favorite thing to do in Lakeland on a Saturday?

A morning run around beautiful Lake Hollingsworth, a stroll around our local downtown farmers market, followed by lunch at a local café or restaurant.
