Student Outreach and Advising Coordinator
College of Education and Human Development
I started at Mason fresh out of college (Radford University) in 2006. I had been a student worker while a Political Science undergrad at Radford for the Admissions Office, so it was my only real office experience. After I graduated, the Registrar’s Office hired me and I found a new calling…. Higher Education. I never looked back.
During my career at Mason, I naturally gravitated to the Staff Senate. It’s always been in my blood to be a part of something bigger than just myself. I was always on Student Government in high school or in a sorority in college. I like being connected and “in the know.” I’ve made some truly wonderful friends on the Staff Senate as well, which makes it even more enjoyable. I am a new member of the Events Committee. I guess they figured if I can pull off planning and executing two convocations ceremonies (GSE and RHT) for my full time job then I could contribute to this committee as well!
My personal goal is to ski the Alps in all eight European countries. So far I’ve skied the German, French, and Italian Alps. It might be awhile until I can hit the slopes again. I’ll have to get my 13 month old son Coen trained first. Yes, I will be that mom on the slopes with their little munchkin on a leash and skis!
