I am a North Carolina native, but prior to coming to UNC Asheville in 2016 I spent six years in the Boston area working with business students in a Residence Life and an Academic Advising setting. I also taught in a professional development seminar and ran a co-curricular program that focused exclusively on engaging students in their careers. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Communications & Master's Degree in College Student Personnel from Western Carolina University and have found a great deal of satisfaction working with college students. In my role as the Associate Director for Employer Relations I partner with area and regional employers to build recruiting strategies to bring more UNC Asheville students and alumni on board.

On a more personal note, environmental sustainability is a core value, I watch a ton of movies, and care more about the Carolina Panthers than I probably should. I recently bought a home in the area, and plan to set deep roots in the community for years to come. Swing by Highsmith 224, or send me an email, I'm looking forward to working with you.
