I've been at Furman since December 2011, but my history with the university goes back a bit further than that. I attended Furman and graduated in 2004 with an individualized curriculum major in Anthropology. I continued my studies at the University of South Carolina in Columbia and received a M.A. in Cultural Anthropology with a focus in Historical Archaeology.

My favorite part of working in the Center for Academic Success at Furman is getting to know the students and helping them become stronger writers, multimedia composers, and lifelong learners.
