Get to Know me

I enjoy working with colleagues across campus on projects such as the current Next Generation Web Presence Project, and across the Piedmont Triad on community engagements such as the Triad Business Journal’s Mentoring Monday and Women in Business events. 

Prior to joining UNCG, I served as Vice President of University Relations at West Virginia State University and previously served as Press Secretary to then-Governor Earl Ray Tomblin of West Virginia. 

A self-described “foodie,” I enjoy cooking Pinterest recipes (including sourdough!) and trying new restaurants, and supporting local businesses. She lives in Greensboro with her husband and their two children.
