Assistant Vice President for Undergraduate Admissions
I hold a bachelor's degree from North Adams State College ('95) in Business Administration and an M.Ed from Northeastern University ('07), Boston, MA, in Higher Education Administration.
Prior to my arrival at Georgia State, I worked at North Adams State College for two years. I then spent nine and a half years in Boston working at Northeastern University before moving south to work at Clayton State University for a year and a half. I chose the admissions field because it provided me the opportunity to work with students from all walks of life and backgrounds along with many wonderful travel opportunities. In fact, I have visited over 30 states and traveled to 15 different countries as an admission professional.
Georgia State University is an exciting place to be and my staff and I look forward to helping you learn about all that awaits you here.

Associate Director of Recruitment
Former position: I worked for four years at Northeastern University (Boston, MA) in college admissions. I then worked as a high school College Transition Counselor at The Met School in Providence, RI for four years, followed by a three-year position with Providence College. Since my first day in this profession, I have believed that we are here to change the lives of young people. I am passionate about college admission because we are able to open doors of access to education for individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to progress and find their own passions. This truly is my dream job.
