Education: Furman (2008) BA in Psychology & Religion; University of Pittsburgh (2010) MS Developmental Psychology

Favorite activity in Greenville: Fall For Greenville! 

Favorite Greenville restaurant: Tupelo Honey or Smoke on the Water

Favorite Furman tradition: Shaking your set of keys during kick off at football games

Best thing about Furman: Living on campus all four years truly creates a unique campus life experience with lifelong friendships!

Hobbies/interests: Running, hanging out with my Black Lab, Reagan, country music concerts

Most frequently asked question and answer: How was the adjustment to living in the South?  It was an easy and enjoyable transition!  Greenvillians are so welcoming, and Furman provides a unique opportunity to experience southern hospitality while you meet people from all over the country and world.

Best piece of advice for prospective students: Once you’ve narrowed your college search, visit your top campuses more than once.  Chances are, you missed something the first go around, and a second visit can really help you “seal the deal”!

Random/fun fact about you: In 7th grade, I hung out with LeBron James and beat him in a game of knock-out.
