I've been working in student services and academic affairs for 10 years and have been a part of the Cedar Crest community since December 2013. I earned a bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Asheville. During college I thought about being a psychiatrist, a rabbi, a philosopher, an Army chaplain, a lawyer, and forensic psychologist, but my experiences as a student leader ultimately lead me to pursue a career in higher education.
The day I graduated from college I moved to Knoxville, Tennessee, where I earned a master's degree in College Student Personnel. I love learning and I'm currently pursuing master's degree in Comparative and International Education at Lehigh University.
When I'm not at work or studying, you can find me reading, quilting, knitting, or hiking. I love yoga and running and I ran a marathon in October 2013. It was an amazing experience, but I think I'm still tired! I love to travel, try new foods, get to know people who are different from me and I absolutely hate zombies. I'm lucky to be married to Allen and I love our two cats-especially the one who think she's a dog.
