People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”  These words represent more than sentiment for me – they encompass and drive everything I do personally and professionally. Working alongside our current undergraduate students, and counseling high school students through the college admissions process challenges me on a daily basis to be the best version of myself, and compels me to learn new ways of thinking, speaking, and doing. I live for the connections I make with current and prospective students, helping them navigate through challenging situations.

I am a native Washingtonian and claim GW as my second home! I received my MBA from the GW School of Business in 2013 and never left. My husband and I raised our three children in DC, and they’ve all graduated from GW.

I’m an enthusiastic eco-traveler, and somehow manage to squeeze in a whale watching tour on just about every trip. Seeing a blue whale is at the very top of my bucket list! At home, you will find me working in the yard, inside crocheting while binge-watching a tv series, or wrestling with my gray Labrador, Churchill.  #RAISEHIGH
