I was born and raised in High Point, NC, spent my first two years of college at UNC Greensboro, then transferred to Western Carolina University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology with a concentration in Forensic Anthropology and a minor in Psychology. I stayed at Western and completed a Master of Education in College Student Personnel, where I served as a Graduate Assistant for two years in the Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education and served one year as the President of the Graduate Student Association. I started at Capitol in October 2013 as an Assistant Director of Career Services and Graduate Student Support and was promoted to Associate Director in June 2016. I have also been a one-person shop the whole time, reporting directly to the Dean of Students (now VP of Student Engagement). We're a small school of about 400 undergrads and 200-250 grad and doctorate students, and we specialize in technical related majors and business.
