Where Do You Hang-Out In Columbus?

My neighborhood is the Bexley area but I love to venture out to all parts of Columbus. Easton, Short North, Clintonville and Downtown are where I spend the majority of my free time though.

What Was Your Favorite Class In College and Why?

I love anything having to do with Sociology. I love learning about people and societies and how it all works together. 

What Do You Love About Columbus State?

I love being able to help students who are feeling lost or concerned during the beginning process of college. The best part of my job is connecting with students then later seeing them on campus succeeding and enjoying their time here, just as I did when I went to Columbus State.

What Advice Would You Give To Incoming, New Students?

Be sure to push yourself and get involved. So many unexpected things come from being an involved student. Reach out, ask questions and go for it!

Your Current Role At Columbus State and How Your Role Helps Students?

I work primarily on coordinating the events through Admissions where we host prospective and new students. I also serve as a Project Manger on special projects for the department and its Administrators.
