What is your favorite quote?

"I am a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it." - Thomas Jefferson

What is the best advice you can give for a student looking at colleges?

Own the process. Whether is it filling out the application, registering for the campus tour or even calling the school, take that initiative to take the lead on your college search and application process. You will find it to be the most rewarding by doing it yourself.

What is your favorite part about being a recruiter for UNG?

It is awesome to speak with students who had not known about UNG before we spoke, and a year later, they pass me while on campus and say, "hey!"

Restaurant recommendation for visitors who come to campus?

Outside of our campus, the other stop you should make in Dahlonega is Pueblos.

What is one thing you wish you knew in college that you know now?

I wish I had known how awesome studying abroad could be. I never studied abroad, so I hope you do like the many other students at UNG and study abroad.

What is your favorite UNG moment?

Besides being a 5-time dodgeball champion at UNG, I would have to say it was the times I spent with the people I worked with at the Rec Center. We dubbed ourselves the "Rec Fam," and they are still some of my closest friends.
