Senior Admissions Counselor

Hometown: Midlothian, Virginia

Education: B.S. in Public Policy & Administration ('13) & Master of Public Administration ('14) Double Duke!


Why I chose to attend JMU: I loved JMU from my very first visit to campus. However, what solidified my choice to come to JMU was the enthusiasm that I saw from the students when I came to campus for CHOICES. They were so welcoming and before I knew it, I was picturing myself on campus and I realized how great of a fit the university was for me.

Favorite JMU Memory: When we beat Virginia Tech in football! And I love snowy days on campus. 

Favorite Dining Hall: JMU has incredible food so it’s hard to pick just one. However, I spent the most time at Festival during my time here. It’s hard not to when they have grilled cheese, crepes, salads, Chinese food AND flatbreads! 

Favorite JMU Spot: The Quad is a great place to be when you’re outside, but I also love Taylor Down Under in Taylor Hall. It’s a great place to grab food, study, listen to music, and they even have comedy shows every month!
