Online Admissions Counselor
I am from Columbia. I started at LWC in 2005 as a KY work study in the financial aid office, in 2006 I was hired full-time as the receptionist and in 2009 I was promoted to the Federal Work Study Coordinator in financial aid where I worked until Nov. 2022.

I graduated with a BA in Communications from LWC in 2009. I was a non-traditional student who juggled work and family along with my education. I love working with non-traditional students, like I was, to better themselves and obtain a higher education.
In my spare time, I love reading, gardening and spending time with my family.
