My personal philosophy is that we need more women leaders. We are growing that generation right now, and these are fearless women who are willing to go out and work hard.

I began my New Media Institute journey in 2018 as an Emerging Media Master’s student. Now, as faculty advisor for the Emerging Media Online program, I oversee students’ journeys all the way from admission to graduation. I also teach certificate courses and continue to grow the NMI network by working closely with alumni and corporate partners.

I previously worked as the assistant director of student engagement in the college’s Office of Undergraduate Student Services and Corporate Relations. I also served as an administrator for UGA's Terry College by facilitating many programs, including Terry Ambassadors, Terry Connect, Terry Peer Link and the Business Ready Initiative. and the Terry Women’s Initiative.

Prior to moving to Athens, I taught college writing and literature in the English department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where I also earned a Master of Fine Arts degree.
