About Me

My life is a mix of roles including University employee, alumna and parent of a Gamecock, yoga teacher, mom and spouse to a UMC pastor. I love reading, being outdoors and my newest interest is bullet journaling. 

Favorite Spot On Campus

My one-mile walking route starting and ending on the Horseshoe, and Colonial Life Arena during women’s basketball season.

Length of Time at USC

Fall 2023 will begin my 25th year of working at the University. 

Favorite Gamecock Moment

Traveling to Minnesota watch the Gamecock WBB team win the 2022 National Championship!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
