More Facts About Me!
What’s your Hometown?
My dad was in the military so I was born in Iowa, and we settled in Pitt County when he retired and I was 8 years old. From then I grew up in the Bethel area but I now live near Ayden, NC.
Why did you choose to work at NCWU?
I needed a change from my previous career and this was a perfect fit for me. I wanted to do what my advisor had done for me while I was a student.

What’s your Tip(s) for incoming students?
I would say keep in touch with your advisor and keep the line of communication open. We have your best interests at heart and want to see you succeed in education and life.
What’s your Tip(s) for applicants?
Though you will not be on the main campus much as an Adult and Professional Studies Student, visit the campus. It’s beautiful and I believe can help you envision completing your education with NCWU. Also, if possible, meet your advisor in person. Get to know your team. They are part of your support system and want to help. Don’t give up.
