Graduate Associate for Family Programs 
Current Graduate Work: Counseling and Development at Winthrop University
Undergraduate Degree: BA in Psychology at Clemson University
Hometown: I’ve been lucky enough to call quite a few places home throughout my life, but home now is Charlotte, NC!
About Me: I am pursuing a career in School Counseling and am so excited to work with students every day! I love to travel, exercise, and eat good food (Italian is my favorite!). In my free time, I love to read and spend time outdoors. I’m also a mom to a little bunny named Mango!
Advice for New Eagles: Get involved! I promise your college experience will be more meaningful and fulfilling if you get plugged into the campus community. Don’t be afraid to ask questions when you don’t understand something, and don’t stop until you do! Utilize faculty office hours - your professors want to meet you! Make good choices, learn from your mistakes, work hard, and have fun!
Advice for the Parents/Family Members of New Eagles: Trust your student to make the best decisions, and trust that you have equipped them throughout their lives with the tools that they need to be successful during this time of their lives and beyond. They will be okay (and so will you)!
Fun Fact: I studied abroad in Florence, Italy the summer after my junior year of college!
