About Me

I grew up in Annandale, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C., in a family of die-hard sports fans. It didn’t take me long to latch onto the dream of becoming a sports broadcaster, a dream I started pursuing at Carolina and was blessed to realize professionally for five years after graduation. For most of that time, I served as the radio and television voice of women’s sports at Western Kentucky University. But eventually my heart called me home—to UofSC and to the Top Scholar family that made my college experience special and my dream possible. When I’m not at work, I’m either on the edge of my seat watching sports or Survivor, or weaving my way through the Carolinas exploring the food and culture of the South. And you may still hear me on the air here and there!

Favorite Spot on Campus

There are so many, but the historic side of campus from the Horseshoe to Capstone always takes my breath away.

Length of Time at UofSC

2013-2017 as a student; since January 2022 as an employee

Favorite Gamecock Moment

Some of my favorite memories include calling Gamecock Hockey games at the Plex in Irmo, chasing intramural softball championships with a team of fellow Top Scholars, and shag dancing Thursday nights in the Vista!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
