There’s nothing better than finding a career that allows you to contribute, innovate, design and improve processes. Choosing and completing that career path is what I’m here to help you do.

I support students pursuing degrees in the colleges of Engineering and Mineral Resources, Education and Human Services, and Agriculture. I’d be happy to hear from you via email or you can contact me by phone between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

A Little Bit About Me

I attended WVU as both an undergraduate and graduate student. Since then I’ve worked at several different schools across the country.

One thing I’d like prospective students to know: I’m excited to be helping prospective WVU Online students find what programs will best meet their needs.

Best advice I’ve been given and continue to use today: An Educational Law professor at WVU told me that people generally find whatever it is they go looking for, so make sure you’re looking for something worthwhile.

What I like to do when I’m not working:Running, writing, and gardening.

My go-to snack: Chocolate chip cookies, preferably with a tall, cold lemonade.
