About Me: I worked as a high school Math teacher for 15 years, then transitioned to higher education. I enjoy helping students with their academic and career goals. I have lived my entire life in Ohio, but just recently relocated to South Carolina to be closer to family. I enjoy the outdoors, cooking, traveling and spending time with friends and family. 

Favorite Quote: Dance like no one is watching, Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like no one is listening, Live like it's heaven on earth

Advice to Students: Learn as much as you can. Strive for progress, not perfection. You can't grow in your comfort zone, so go ahead and get out of it. Enjoy every moment!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
