Bio: 
I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, and graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor's of Business Administration degree, double majoring in Marketing and Management. After spending 10 years in Human Resources Management for MBNA Bank, who was eventually bought out by Bank of America, I had the fortunate opportunity to stay at home with my three daughters, who are currently ages 23, 20, and 15. I re-entered the workforce four years ago and started my higher education career at the University of North Texas. Prior to working in the Counseling office, I managed the Testing center. I oversaw the administration of GRE, PRAXIS, TSI's, and computer and paper-based tests. I love working in higher education and have a passion for helping students, in any small way that I can, achieve their goals. In my free time, I like to volunteer at a local senior center, work out, and love mystery novels.
