Hello future Highlanders! I am the Regional Assistant Director to the Tidewater area covering the Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, and Portsmouth areas as well as several community colleges in the Tidewater region. I am so excited to work with you and your family during your college journey. After graduating from William & Mary, I was drawn to the field of higher education because of the amazing experience that I had as an undergraduate and I have been working in college admission ever since! I started my career as an Admission Counselor in 2007 at Richard Bland College in Petersburg, VA. After earning my Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration from William & Mary in 2012, I went on to work in the Office of Undergraduate Admission at William & Mary for several years before joining the Radford team in the fall of 2019. The thing I love most about working in college admission is getting to help students and their families navigate the college search and application process and I’m so excited to continue this work at Radford!

Although I am based in the Hampton Roads area, I love my visits out to Radford during the year where I get to connect with our wonderful students and faculty and be on the beautiful campus! If you haven’t been to visit Radford, I highly encourage you to visit. It is a breathtakingly beautiful area and the campus has a variety of opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom, for everyone! The people at Radford are incredibly special too. From the moment I stepped onto campus, I was welcomed with open arms by the entire community of faculty, staff, and students and I know that you will have the same experience when you come to visit!

If I can be of any assistance to you as you navigate the admissions and enrollment process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to working with you!
