B.A. Psychology – University of South Carolina

M.S. Educational Psychology – Walden University


I have worked in higher education for over 10 years. I continued my career at the University of South Carolina in March 2017 as an Academic Advisor for the Arnold School of Public Health. In September 2022, I joined the USC School of Medicine family as the Graduate Program Liaison in the Office of Student Affairs and Career Advising. Primarily, I work directly with SOM graduate program students. I serve as the point of contact for graduate programs. I work to increase the overall academic experience for graduate program students by providing resources and opportunities for student engagement. I assist students in helping them feel supported and connected to the USC SOM.  I am also an instructor of University 101: The Student in the University. Outside of work I enjoy reading, traveling and quality time with family and friends.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
