executive director of enrollment management

what drew you to the higher education world?

as a college student, i didn't know a profession in higher education even existed. but as a college student, i was super involved on campus and was fortunate to have some great mentors in and out of the classroom. when i found out that i could actually get paid to encourage students to go to college, and help students and their parents through the college search process, i was hooked.

what do you enjoy most about your role at sfa?

the opportunity to make positive change for students, the university, and the state. i enjoy collaborating with faculty and staff on initiatives that can positively impact the recruitment, retention, and success of our students.

what do you hope students gain from sfa?

i know this may sound cheesy, but a "transformative" experience. as a first-generation college student, my college experience transformed me – it provided me both a formal educational degree and a rich "life" experience. i hope students gain new friendships with individuals that are different than themselves; a respect for diversity; new experiences, skills, knowledge, and interests; a passion for lifelong learning; and a commitment to support and improve their community.

what are you passionate about outside of your role at sfa?

my family. i truly believe that if i am committed to being the best wife, mother, sister, daughter and aunt that i am called to be, i can help improve my family and my community. i love to travel, near and far. and i'm always open to discovering new adventures.
