About Me:  

I am a born and raised Texas girl. After graduating from college I went into the world of Financial Aid and spent 15 years helping students finance their way through school. Now as the Texas Regional Recruitment Counselor, the opportunity to represent The University of South Alabama and educate students and staff on all the wonderful things that make up USA is an opportunity that I could not be more excited about! I have a strong passion for working with students and watching their progression as they make their transition from high school to college or transfer from one college to another. I am excited to be part of USA’s New Student Recruitment Team! Go Jags!

My Favorite:

Thing to do on campus  

I would have to say driving around campus looking at all the beautiful scenery and buildings along with going round and round the traffic circle.
Place on campus  

The Student Recreation Center is out of this world! LOVE THE POOLS!!

USA Tradition  

The Fall Semester, when the campus is full of Jaguar Pride and the excitement of a new and exciting school year awaits. Our Jaguar athletes compete at the Division 1 Level, so be sure to show your school pride and wear the Red White and Blue while cheering them on!

Thing about USA  

From the students to the staff/faculty you will receive a warm welcome as soon as you step foot on campus.

Place to Eat in Mobile  

Felix's Fish Camp Grill,  You have to order the crab soup!!!


I am a Red Dirt Country Music fan (aka Texas Country) first and foremost, but listen to all types of music. If it has a beat it will keep me going!


8 Seconds, Grease, Urban Cowboy, and Admissions (A must for any admissions/recruitment counselor)
