I am originally from Vicksburg, MS, but now I currently live in Madison, AL. I have worked in enrollment management over 12 years, and I truly believe in the positive outcomes that higher education can have on student's lives. I am here to assist in any way I can! I wish you all the best and hopefully you will decide to join the Bulldog family!


Get to know me

What is the One Experience Students Shouldn't Miss:

I would say even if you don't like sports, you should attend at least one sporting event. The SEC experience is like no other!

Favorite season on campus:

My favorite season on campus is fall! The leaves on the ginkgo trees on engineering row are a beautiful sight to see.

Favorite Memory from a student organization or club:

Participating at the step shows with my sorority sisters was always so exhilarating, and all the philanthropy we did was very humbling.

The main reason I chose MSU:

The beautiful campus and the friendliness of the people were what drew me to Mississippi State.

What is your favorite restaurant in Starkville?

Restaurant Tyler and Bulldog Burger

Why did you choose to become an admissions counselor?

My junior year of college I was an Orientation Leader, which caused me to fall in love with student affairs work. Giving back to the institution I love was important to me and knew becoming an Admissions Counselor would be a great way to do this. Also, preaching the Mississippi State gospel day in and day out is exciting!
