Which Admissions office programs are you involved in?

Black & Gold Days and PreVU

What’s your favorite Vanderbilt tradition?

I haven't done it but if I could I would definitely do the Anchor Dash. That's pretty amazing to run across the field in front of all of the fans!

What hobby do you wish you had more time for?

I love to organize so if I could go into more homes and organize I would!

What did you study in college?

African-American Studies 

What is the hardest class you have ever taken?

The hardest class I've ever taken was Statistics....we were well into the summer class and I still wanted the professor to go back to chapter 1.

What’s the best concert you’ve seen in Nashville?

The best concert I've seen in Nashville was R&B singer Jill Scott at Ascend Amphitheater. The weather was amazing and she's an incredible performer.

What is your favorite place to eat in Nashville?

There are so many to choose from so right now I'm in love with Shalimar (Classic Indian Cuisine) in the Green Hills area. It's delicious and nutritious, trust me.

What celebrity would play you in the movie of your life?

Tracee Ellis Ross (from "Blackish") should definitely play me in the movie about my life. She's gorgeous, has incredible hair and she's Diana Ross's daughter...c'mon people!

If you weren't an admissions counselor, what would you be?

If I wasn't working as an admissions counselor, hands down I'd be a professional organizer. I'd actually do it for free, it's so fun.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

My husband told me that "Life is about experiences so you have to live and enjoy every moment of it"
