What do you enjoy most about working with UT undergrads?
Each student has a unique story about where they’ve been and where they want to be. College is an exciting time, one when students learn about themselves and develop plans for the future. My goal is to empower students to reach their full potential!
What is the most important advice you would give to new students?
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville offers so many opportunities for students, both inside and outside of the classroom. The best way to grow is to challenge yourself. Don’t be afraid to fail; that is often when you learn and grow the most. Consider seeking opportunities to develop leadership skills; those skills help you both personally and professionally.
What is your favorite place on campus?
It’s a three way tie between Hodges Library, the Clarence Brown Theater, and Thompson-Boling Arena. I am an alumnae of UTK, and I have so many good memories of places on campus. I have a lot of favorite places, but the best part of UTK is really the people - the students, faculty, and staff are what makes this campus special.
