I graduated summa cum laude from Georgetown College with a Bachelor’s degree in History. After attending law school at Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington, I continued my education at the University of Kentucky, earning a Master’s degree and a Doctorate degree in History. While in graduate school, I received multiple awards, including the Lexington Herald Leader Summer Fellows Leadership Award, a Filson Fellowship from the Filson Historical Society, and a research fellowship from the Kentucky Historical Society. I have taught multiple undergraduate courses, including survey courses in history and composition courses in rhetoric and writing studies, at Centre College, San Diego State University, San Diego Mesa College, and Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. I worked as a consultant for the New Jersey History Partnership Project and as an assistant project leader for Facts On File, Inc., an academic publishing house for K-12 students in New York. I have served as an article referee for The Register of the Kentucky Historical Society, and have presented my research on the civil rights movement in Louisville, Kentucky, at many professional conferences. Before joining the advising staff in the College of Arts and Sciences, I was an admissions advisor at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College and served as the Campus Administrative Coordinator of ECTC’s Springfield Campus.
I enjoy working with students and helping them navigate academic and career choices. It is a privilege to return to the University of Kentucky and join the team of advisors who are passionate about assisting, motivating, and supporting students in their pursuit of educational and career goals.
