As an Admissions Counselor at Virginia Wesleyan College, my role takes many shapes. In addition to giving presentations to prospective students, traveling to schools in the greater Richmond area, and working with our student Tele-Counseling program, I really try and build a relationship with students and parents to help them have a smooth transition from Secondary Education into the realm of Higher Education.
I am a Philadelphia native, and began my time in the “South” in 2006 when I came to Virginia Wesleyan. Four years later I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology. During my time here, I worked in the Community Service Office as the Program Coordinator, the Admissions Office as a Wesleyan Ambassador, Student Government as the Vice-President from 2008-2010, as well as other clubs on campus. Shortly after graduation I took a job with ECPI University in their Online Admissions department. I found my way back to Virginia Wesleyan in January of 2012, and have been in Admissions ever since.
Being that I was a Psychology and Sociology major, I find that my specialty is PEOPLE! I love the mind and social interactions with others. If I had to guess where I would be in 50 years, it will be in a service field helping people in one capacity or another.
Outside of VWC, I like to participate in a wide range of activities. Typically I like to go out to eat OFTEN! I’m always up for trying new restaurants and new and exciting food options. I love live music and have a wide range of varieties that I go for. Unfortunately, a lot of my travel is limited to the travel channel, but in the future, I plan to travel the world and try ALL of the food along the way. Until then, I find comfort in going to Philadelphia to see my family and friends, and other quick and random getaways.
