Assistant Director of Admissions and External Relations
My Role in the Honors College
I oversee the various recruitment and admission initiatives in the Honors College at WKU while working closely with other departments on campus to expose high-achieving students to the Honors College experience. I also work with the Coordinator of Constituent Relations to ensure our current students, parents of current students, and alumni groups are all engaged in the spirit of excellence!
Educational & Professional Background
I graduated Cum Laude from WKU in May 2008 with a B.A. in Corporate & Organizational Communication, with a minor in marketing, and a certificate in leadership studies. I am a Lifetime Member of the WKU Alumni Association and was nominated for Young Alumnus of the Year in 2010. Go TOPS! I recently completed my M.A. in Higher Education Administration from the University of Louisville in December 2011. I worked in the WKU Office of Admissions as an Admissions Counselor based out of the Louisville territory for nearly four years and I am actively involved in Kentucky’s Association for College Admission Counseling (KYACAC).
Hobbies and Interests
Cooking, volunteering, hosting social gatherings, pinning and crafting on Pinterest, playing basketball, and spending time with my nephew and niece (WKU Classes of 2025 and 2027 respectively).
What Brought me to the Honors College?
My passion for assisting students with the college search in-general coupled with my belief that the Honors College at WKU is the perfect fit for many prospective college students seeking a smaller community environment with the affordability, facilities, and resources of a robust public institution. Our university motto, the Spirit Makes the Master, is exemplified daily by the faculty, staff, and students in the Honors College at WKU.
