Senior Transfer Admissions Counselor, Transfer Unit

Favorite Thing About WVU

Coming from a small town in West Virginia I’ve always loved the family feel this state has. It’s no different here at WVU. We may have a large student body but we are still a tight and thoughtful family. Everyone is here for each other and no one is treated like a stranger. We are all Mountaineers and one WVU.

Favorite Thing About Your Job

Sometimes finding that one thing you aspire to be can be troublesome to find. Through unique experiences to become an engineer, I found that I liked helping others find and reach their passions in life. This position allows me to help incoming students strive for and attain their goals they set in place for themselves.

Advice for Students

Explore your options and never rule anything out. Keep an open mind and be patient. It’s important to begin with the end in mind. Stay on track and aspire to reach your goals; however, new opportunities arise around every corner and are worth exploring every chance you get.

When You're Not Working You're

Chilling in the virtual world. I absolutely love the diversity of the video game world and its many stories and adventures. However, I do love to go on my own adventures, whether it’s biking on the rail trail, zip-lining along the New River Gorge, white water rafting or geocaching around the countryside.
