Associate Director Academic & Career Coaching
Areas you Serve:
I advise all declared Management and International Business students, and I also advise Pre-Business Administration students with last names L - M.
I graduated from Roanoke College with a B.A. in English and the University of South Carolina with a M.Ed. in Higher Education and Student Affairs. I'm also certified as a Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) and in administering the Strong Interest Inventory Assessment.
My advice to students:
I truly believe in what Maya Angelou once said; that "success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it." I think it's important for students not to compare themselves with their peers and to take the time to truly define what success means for them. It's also important for students to visit their Academic and Career Coach every semester so that they can make sure they are on track for graduation.
I have worked in Academic Advising/Academic Support for almost 8 years and at three different institutions. Working with Business students in the Belk College of Business is extremely rewarding and I'm always amazed at how successful our students are after graduation. In my free time, I love exploring Charlotte, going to shows at the Belk Theater, and trying out new restaurants in the Queen City with my husband and our dog Ellie. I take the Light Rail to and from campus, so please feel free to say hi if you see me on the Light Rail!
