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 attended WVU as both an undergraduate and graduate student, so I am eager and ready to assist any new Mountaineer. 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.



“Being a WVU graduate and a first-generation college student, I’m happy to be back to help you navigate the WVU System. Something WVU Online wants to do is assist you in creating your sense of community and continuity, making sure you have the answers to any and all questions.”

A Little Bit About Me

I’m a proud wife and mom. I’m from Iowa, but I’ve lived in 11 different states to date. WVU is my alma mater and I’m a dog lover!

"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."
