How long have you been employed at Kentucky State?

October 2016

What do you enjoy most about your role? I enjoy “making the numbers work.” Math has always been like second nature for me. Growing up, my goal was to go to law school and become an attorney. I had taken the LSAT, submitted my application and everything! A year before I was set to enroll, I realized it wasn’t my passion. I’m ecstatic that I’ve found a position that will allow me to expound on my passion.

What has been one of your favorite moments at Kentucky State?
I’m an alumna of Kentucky State, so I have many “favorite” moments!  Graduation always gets me emotional because I can relate to the feelings each of our scholars experience as they walk across our stage and receive their degrees.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I am an avid traveler.  I enjoy traveling to different places and experiencing different cultures.

What is one thing you couldn’t live without?
Family and friends…

A fun fact about me is…
I have an interesting and dry sense of humor.  Sometimes, people have a hard time determining whether I’m joking or not.
