I graduated from Marietta College in 2002 with a Major in Business Management and two Minors in Leadership Studies and Spaish. While on campus I was very involved with Residence Life as a Resident Assistant.

I worked for the Leadership Office as my work study job and served on the McDonough Student Advisory Board as President. My involvement with Spanish and Community Service raised my interest in finding a broader way to serve after graduation.

Soon after graduation, I left for Ghana, West Africa, to serve in the Peace Corps for two years as a small business volunteer. I worked for Mellon Bank for a short time before coming across an opportunity to work with Marietta College again.

I am thrilled to be working with all of you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Favorite Quote:

Favorite Marietta Tradition:
I just love the bell tower on campus and how you can hear the bells no matter where you are on campus.

When a class matriculates, we ring the bells once for every student who is joining the "Long Blue Line." This long-standing tradition symbolizes how we really are like a family at Marietta College.

Favorite Place to Visit on the Marietta Campus:
I always look forward to eating at Gilman, the dining hall, when I am on campus. I enjoy my food and Gilman does it well!
