Hometown

Kingstree, SC

This most exciting and life changing journey

I am originally from the tiny town of Kingstree, South Carolina and have lived in The Palmetto State my entire life! I have also lived in Charleston, but most recently I was living in Clemson for the last 11 years before moving to sunny Florida. I love warm weather and am an ocean girl - so obviously this is wonderful for me!

I am thrilled to work with students from south Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. I am also the Coordinator of Transfer Admissions and will assist students who are looking to change from one college or university to Eckerd College.

I have worked in the field of admissions for almost ten years and absolutely love it. I love working with college students and helping them as they embark on this most exciting and life changing journey! Working with college students is incredibly rewarding. The field of admissions is constantly changing so it keeps me on my toes! I love being able to calm the fears that can come with picking a college and answering questions that students and parents have. I also love seeing the "light bulb" go off when I find what it is that truly lights a fire in a student - and then being able to say "Yup - we've got that at Eckerd"!

I am sure you have been carefully reading over websites, brochures, college magazines, etc and you will hear one term over and over - and that is for you to find the right "fit". There are thousands of schools out there but you need to find the one that is the best for YOU! I encourage you to check out a variety of schools - big, small, in a big city, in a small town, maybe even in a state you've never even visited! Take your time and really explore all the opportunities that await you - and don't be surprised if something comes along and shows you something you never expected and it just feels right. Just embrace it and let it happen - and you'll find your perfect "fit".

Transfer students

I consider myself extremely lucky because I have been both an entering freshman and a transfer student. I understand the questions and concerns from both angles and am here to make the transition as easy as possible for you. I attended one school for my first two years of college. It was the right choice for me at the time, but then I made some changes within myself, my major, things that I wanted to pursue, etc. I decided that my first school no longer fit me and I needed to find something that more closely matched with who I was and what I wanted my college experience to be. There are several reasons to consider transferring to another school and it is becoming more popular every year. Financial reasons can be why many students look to transfer. They may stay close to home or attend a community college for a few years before transferring to finish their degree. Students may also transfer because the first school just isn't the right one for them, and they want to find the perfect school. It is never too late to go to your dream school! Talk to your guidance counselors and admissions counselors because we truly want you to go where you will be the most successful. If you settle at a school that just doesn't feel right, you are more likely to have lower grades and to not make the most out of your college experience. Don't be afraid to consider the option to transfer - it may be the best decision you ever make!

Final words of advice

  • Call the admissions counselors with any question that is important to you. Believe me, we've heard it all! If it's important to you, we want to get you the answer. Never be afraid to contact us!
  • Visit every school that you are interested in and stop in at other schools along the way. The school that wasn't on your "college road trip" may be the hidden treasure that will make all the difference.
  • Don't feel pressured. It is wonderful to take advice from other people, but let it ultimately be your decision. We are all trying to help you, but only you know what is best for you and what you need in a college.
  • Don't automatically dismiss a school because it is missing 1 thing on your list of 30 requirements for a school to have. The school may have something better or you may have the opportunity to step up and be a leader and start it on your campus. Keep an open mind!

Best of luck to you on your college search. Remember to have fun! This is an exciting time and I look forward to working with you!
