Director — Office of Admissions
I joined the Admissions Team in July 2003 and have served as Director of Admissions since January 2013. Prior to this role, I served as the Associate Director of Admissions from June 2011 to December 2012, Associate Director of Admissions for Operations and Communications from April 2009 to June 2011, Assistant Director of Admission for Communications from July 2007 to March 2009, and Admission Web Counselor from July 2003 to June 2007.
As Director of Admissions, I provide leadership for the Office of Admissions by leading the development and implementation of effective strategies to attract, enroll and retain new students and advocate for access to higher education.
The Office of Admissions provides pre-college awareness, recruitment and admission counseling services to prospective students, families, and school counselors. An annual recruitment program is prepared and executed to meet the enrollment goals of the University, as established by the Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Committee.
We also oversee adherence to the University's admission policy and the processing of undergraduate and graduate student admission applications for all campuses, including the regional campuses and online programs.
Southeast challenged me but also believed in me when I was a student. The relationships I built with faculty and staff were key to me seeing the potential in myself and encouraging me to get involved and take on leadership roles. From being a founding member of Omicron Delta Kappa's chapter at SEMO to winning first place in the Delta Epsilon Chi national competition to traveling abroad visiting four countries in Europe, these experiences have shaped who I am today.
