"I am the new Senior Assistant Director in the Office of Admissions for Visitation. I am a 2004 JMU alumnus with my Master’s Degree, and have been working at JMU since 1994. I have worked in Intercollegiate Athletics, the Institute for Innovation in Health and Human Services, Dining Services (twice) and Alumni Relations prior to taking this position on June 1st. My most recent position was as the Location Manager for Dining Services at the Student Success Center, so if you have spent any time at the Bistro 1908, Grace St. Market or Dunkin’ Donuts in the last two years, chances are you have seen me running around. I am very excited to take on this role, and to work with the Student Ambassadors as an advisor."

"I took a tour of JMU during my senior year of high school. I had already decided I wanted to attend a school further away from home and was determined not to like JMU. Well I didn’t like it….I LOVED IT! I rounded a corner of the campus and came upon the quad and that was it for me. I could see myself on campus both as a nervous freshman and as a seasoned senior. JMU was the perfect fit for me. It was far enough away from home to feel like I was on my own but close enough for me to go home whenever I needed to. It was a large school with a small school personality. I could never go a day on campus without meeting someone new but I also could never go a day on campus without seeing someone I knew."
On-Campus Activities: Hanging out on the Wilson steps of the Quad; Drinking tea in Taylor Down Under; Movies and concerts on campus; Attending football games…GO DUUUKES!

JMU Memory: During my sophomore year of college, we had a pretty rough winter. There was one snow day in particular where my close college friends and I bundled up in just about every piece of clothing we had. We walked down to the quad and built snowmen, made snow angels, and had a huge snowball fight. We rounded up our outdoor activities with dinner at D-Hall. I haven’t spent that much time playing in the snow since I was in elementary school and it was fantastic!
