I joined the Limestone family in October 2003 after leaving a job with the South Carolina Department of Transportation. Serving as Registrar at Limestone University gives me great pride. The opportunity to assist students in realizing their dreams of obtaining a college degree is something I take very seriously. At Limestone, we are a small, close knit family, and our faculty/staff and administration are here to support the students in all aspects of college life.

Limestone University has always been my stomping ground, as I grew up a few blocks from The University, and would often ride my bicycle around the campus. I used to take dancing lessons starting at the age of four, continuing all the way up through my senior year in high school, and the big highlight of our yearly dance recitals were always held in the Fullerton Auditorium. As a child, I would often tell my friends, “One day I am going to work at Limestone University.” I joined the Limestone family on January 4, 2010, after leaving the Cherokee County Public School System, where I taught 5 year kindergarten for 10 years. I like to say that I finally graduated from teaching 5 year kindergarten, to educating college students! I’m very proud to be a part of the Limestone family.
