Life before Agnes Scott: I worked in admissions at Wesleyan College and in development and volunteer management at Senior Connections, a Meals On Wheels affiliate in Atlanta
What’s one thing you’d rather not do without? Peanut butter and lists. Peanut butter is the perfect food, and lists keep me focused and productive. I’ve been known to write down a completed task to immediately mark it off my to-do list.
A word or phrase to describe myself: I’m like an onion – lots of layers.
Favorite book: I think I’ve had a different favorite book at every stage in life. Currently, my favorite is Pride and Prejudice.
Favorite movie: “Newsies.” It’s been my favorite since the seventh grade. I may or may not still know all of the song lyrics and choreography.

At Agnes Scott since: summer of 2013
Why I work at Agnes Scott: I believe in the world-changing power of education and Agnes Scott is an institution with an incredible history of educating and empowering women.
Favorite spot on campus: Evans Dining Hall. I attended an event at Evans long before I started working at Agnes Scott, and fell in love with the architecture.
Favorite spot in Decatur: Leon’s Full Service
Favorite spot in Atlanta: Any of the Atlanta Beltline trails. They all have a different feel- urban at Historic Fourth Ward, pastoral along Peachtree Creek at Atlanta Memorial Park - and soon they will connect all around the City of Atlanta.

3 reasons to attend Agnes Scott:

  1. Opportunities to get involved on campus and in the Atlanta area are endless.
  2. Agnes Scott’s extensive curriculum and academic support make it possible for students to discover, study and prepare for all types of careers and vocations.
  3. The campus is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
