I am a native of Virginia where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Paralegal Law from Virginia Commonwealth University. I relocated to North Carolina and joined Duke’s Sanford School of Public Policy in 1987 where I recruited graduate students as well as assisted current students and alumni in finding summer internships and permanent jobs. In 1998, I entered the world of financial aid working in the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office, and later the Fuqua School of Business, where I counseled students and families about their financial options for attending Duke. In 2008, I returned to the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office.
Over the years I have worked at Duke I have come to respect Duke's total commitment to its students, and my goal is to provide the best possible service to our students and families. My philosophy is "the distance between success and failure can only be measured by one’s desire."
