Personal Statement

I have spent the majority of my professional career on college campuses. I have previously worked closely with student leaders helping them achieve their student organization goals and with various higher education stakeholders assisting with their event planning needs from small meetings to lectures to commencement.

When not on campus, I enjoy exploring Umstead State Park where you can find me on the trails—hiking, running, or riding my bike. I also absolutely love spending my time creating things. I am a passionate knitter and illustrator and even run my own small Etsy shop. And, nothing beats catching a show at Kings or watching a great film on the couch with my husband and cats.

A recent transplant from the Washington, D.C. area, I am so excited to be a part of the Meredith College community. I truly enjoy working with and assisting students, so if you see me wandering around the library, please don’t hesitate to say hello or ask for assistance!
