Favorite Thing About WVU

The endless opportunities for students at WVU! With nearly 360 majors, over 500 organizations and clubs, and the beautiful state of West Virginia as a backdrop, every student can mix up their perfect recipe for fulfillment and success.

Favorite Thing About Your Job

I have undoubtedly one of the best jobs at WVU! On a daily basis I get to connect students and their families to an amazing university that may not have previously been on their radar. My favorite conversation with families is after they have visited the WVU campus for the first time. I love hearing the excitement in their voices when they explain how West Virginia University is the perfect fit for their student. It’s moments like these that make my job extremely rewarding.

Advice for Students

Start the process early! Spend time discovering all of your options by visiting campuses and most importantly ask QUESTIONS! Talk to students, faculty members and your admission counselor to get all of your questions answered. You want to make the most informed decision that you can, so you can concentrate on the important things when you finally get to campus.

When You're Not Working You're

Spending time with my family and friends; including my dogs, Anders and Keeona. I love to entertain guests, be creative in the kitchen and complete projects around the house. When at all possible, you will find me either traveling to faraway lands or dreaming of them. I have quite an extensive bucket list that I fully intend to complete!
