I am also proud to be a Michigan State University Spartan!
I attended Furman University, ETSU, and the University of Tennessee (Go VOLS) where I earned my B.S. and M.S. degrees before attending and working at Michigan State University.
At MSU, I earned a Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration while working as a residence hall director. After completing my degree, I was hired by MSU where I have served as an administrator and faculty member.
