Though I’m originally from Virginia Beach, I’ve lived in Ohio for the last two decades and consider myself much more a native Ohioan than Virginian. I’ve always enjoyed learning in any form I can find and perhaps it was this thirst for knowledge which drove me into both a Bachelors and a subsequent Masters program at Bowling Green State University, the former earned in 2015 and the latter in 2020.
Higher education always felt rather comfortable to me. I enjoyed the coursework and the overall atmosphere of learning and self-improvement that a university seems inevitably to foster. As a result, it seemed only natural that, as a newly minted MA, I would focus my job search in the field that had always felt so much like home. My love of learning and desire to help others have access to the same educational opportunities I’ve been lucky enough to experience made admissions a particularly enticing field, so when I heard about an opening in Tiffin University’s Online Admissions department I jumped at the chance.
Outside of work, I fill my time in any number of ways. Reading has always been a major focus of my life and I still devour nearly every book I can get my hands on, regardless of genre. Additionally, I’ve always enjoyed watching sports, mainly baseball and football, and I’ve fostered a deep appreciation for gaming, both in a virtual environment and in a more traditional tabletop structure. I tend to spend my weekends with my family and particularly enjoy the company of my young niece and nephew, who are more than adorable enough to make up for their rambunctious nature.
