Brief Biography

Originally from Williamsburg, VA, I came to Elon to persue a degree in Communications in the fall of 2006. Like many students, "something" just felt right when I visited, and I haven't looked back since! For me, that "something" was Elon's fantastic community that we get to call family. 

I love working and interacting with people, which led to a major in Strategic Communications. I was blessed with the opportunity to study abroad in Denmark, where I studied international adversiting and coincidentally fell in love with all things Danish and Scandinavian... "Jeg elsker Danmark!!"  While there, I was bitten by the travel bug and enjoy exploring new places when visiting with students across the country. I also was a Periclean Scholar, and enjoy our continuing partnership with a rural healthcare center in Ghana.

You can catch me exploring the great outdoors, reading, cooking, and, of course, traveling. I certainly found my home at Elon and am passionate about helping students find where they bELONg. If I can assist in the admissions process in any way, please let me know!
