I joined the Office of Admission after earning a B.A. in Archaeology from Oglethorpe in May 2006. Originally from Franklin, Tennessee, I transferred to Oglethorpe after beginning elsewhere, and I designed my own major in archaeology though our Individually Planned Major (IPM) program. In addition to participating in two short-term study abroad trips to Italy and Greece, I spent a semester abroad at Corpus Christi College in Oxford, England, studying Paleolithic and Biblical archaeology. Recently, I completed my Master of Library and Information Science degree. When not helping students throughout the admission process, I enjoy reading up on Oglethorpe history, watching classic cinema with my boyfriend John, and playing with our dog Madison.
