Favorite Marietta Tradition:
The annual Matriculation Ceremony is my favorite Marietta College tradition. Our faculty are dressed in full cap and gown! They lead our new students into a ceremony of commitment to excellence. It is a proud and impressive moment for everyone! This is the continuation of our "Long Blue Line."
Favorite Place to Visit on the Marietta Campus:
My favorite place is to be on The Mall, especially when classes are between sessions. As we pass, I appreciate the friendliness of our students and faculty. Sounds of conversations and laughter fill the air. Smiling and confident faces are seen. The Mall is a great place to visit!!

I am so thrilled to be a part of the admissions staff here at Marietta! After completing a phenomenal four years here as a member of the women's rowing program that earned back-to-back Mid-Atlantic Conference championship titles and coveted Dad Vail Gold medals, a member of Alpha Xi Delta Women's Fraternity and a senior interviewer for admissions, I wanted the opportunity to give back to Marietta College what it has given to me.
I look forward to sharing all of the great opportunities Marietta College has to offer with the students and families I am working with, in hopes that they will have a similarly exciting and memorable college experience here.
I love my work, but when I am not in my office or on the road, I enjoy rowing, running, being outdoors and shopping.
