“There is no growth in your comfort zone, so why allow yourself the ability to even dabble in mediocrity.”

What have you enjoyed most about your career?

“I have been in Higher Education for 12 years. I enjoy the opportunity to engage with undergraduate students in ways that enhance their individual identity development. Personal development is essential to one’s growth. I am fortunate that I am able to contribute my knowledge through my role as an educator to young men and women across the US and abroad.”

How did Carthage prepare you?

“I was a very active student leader and athlete during my time at Carthage. Being involved in extracurricular activities provided me with the necessary skill-set to be successful in engaging with others, creating opportunities that enhanced my personal career development but most importantly the development of my grit to overcome obstacles both personally and professionally.”

How has your liberal arts education benefitted you?

“I spent 6 consecutive years on a Board of Directors for a professional association that was charged with providing its members with meaningful professional development/growth opportunities. For two of the six years I served as the President during one of the most pressing times in Higher Education. A new policy surrounding the handling of high risk behaviors in college was being proposed and the members of the organization had varying points of view that were often opposed to each other. I had to learn the importance of effective communication, the need for a well thought out strategy and the importance of teamwork to get the job done. It was the most trying point in my career. I am fortunate that I learned these skills as a student while serving in multiple student leader roles, particularly as a resident assistant.”

Tips for current Carthage students:

“Take advantage of the opportunities afforded to you as a student. Your experience is what you make of it so choose wisely. Utilize the resources on campus and connect with as many people as you can that are different than your usual circle. There is no growth in your comfort zone, so why allow yourself the ability to even dabble in mediocrity.”

Favorite Carthage memories:

“Some of my favorite Carthage memories include being a member of the Women’s Track and Field Team, late night capture the flag tournaments, touring Europe with the Gospel Messengers and being crowned Carthage Homecoming Queen. Carthage provided me with an opportunity to expand my world view. I was an inner city girl who only knew about life around her. Coming to Carthage exposed me to different cultures and opportunities. It forced me to think critically about my own individual identity and how I viewed the world.”
