I'm originally from Chicago, where I grew up with two younger brothers and am now a proud aunt to a niece and two nephews. I’ve been an academic advisor, a campus minister, and a high school teacher. When I'm not hanging out at home with my dog Killian, I like to be off traveling the world. I enjoy long distance walks, including the West Highland Way, and have completed two pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Feel free to ask to see pictures!
Favorite Spot On Campus
It’s really hard to beat the Horseshoe.
Length of Time at USC

Favorite Gamecock Moment/Best Part about being a Gamecock
I love how easy it is to encounter Gamecocks in the wild - I even ran into one at the Great Wall of China!
