Brief Biography

I came to work at Elon during the summer of 2007 and I am so proud to be a part of this dynamic campus community.  I will confess, I am one of the few admissions staff members who is not an Elon alum, but I grew up in the piedmont of NC and have known Elon most of my life.  For me, the opportunity to work at Elon meant being part of a supportive academic community and gave me the opportunity to be closer to family.

The best part of my job is meeting interested students and helping them determine if Elon will be a good fit.  Please consider me a resource whenever you have questions about Elon or about how to navigate the admissions or scholarship process.

On a personal note, I reside on my family farm in Rockingham County, NC with my husband and two daughters.  When I'm not at the office, I enjoy running and the performing arts- especially music theatre.
