Having been born and raised in Hampton, VA, the prospect of staying at Southern Connecticut State University as a financial aid counselor was tempting after I graduated in 2007, but my heart was intent on returning to the South-East to raise my family. After a brief appointment as a Client Services Counselor in the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 2011-2014, believe me when I say that having the opportunity to stay in the financial aid industry and join the amazing group of people here at Duke University in the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office is truly one of highlights of my professional career.

I am extremely excited to have the chance to make the wide range of educational experiences here at Duke University accessible to the entire undergraduate population. As a first generation college student, I was forced to understand the financial aid process for myself. I look forward to serving our amazing students and their parents while sharing my experiences and growing knowledge base with all of the future Blue Devil alumni to make them feel as just as much “at home” here on campus as the faculty and staff have made me feel these last few years. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I would be more than glad to help!
