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 this amazing chapter in their lives.

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 reading, I actually read 6 novels this summer. I love running, going to the beach, and traveling to big cities.

Favorite Book

Being an avid reader it’s hard to name just one. I enjoy books by leadership expert John Maxwell, mystery novels by Shari Lapena, and Christian fiction by Francine Rivers. Maxwell’s The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, Lapena’s The Couple Next Door, and Rivers’ Bridge To Haven are among my favorites.

Any favorite restaurants or hangouts in Lakeland?

Black & Brew and Purple Onion are my favorite, though I enjoy popping by Frescos to check out their amazing pastry case!

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.
