What advice would you offer to students during their college search and application processes?
I would advise students to visit as many universities as they can throughout their search. Campus visits are very helpful with putting things in prospective for students and helping them realize what type of institution is the best fit.

How long have you worked as an admissions counselor at Saint Louis University?
I have worked at SLU for 1 year.

What do you enjoy most about your work as an admissions counselor at Saint Louis University?
The reward of this job is what I love most. Helping students make one of the most important decisions of their lives is an honor that I do not take lightly.

Where is your favorite spot on SLU's campus?
My favorite area on campus is in front of the Griesedieck Complex where the hammocks sway!

What is your favorite restaurant (or entertainment venue) near SLU's campus that you recommend to students and their families?
My favorite restaurant near campus is Pappy's barbecue. It is so delicious and just a short walk from campus. This is a "must eat" for visitors!

What did you study as an undergraduate?
As an undergraduate student I double majored in Communication and African American Studies.

Other than those regarding financial aid, what are the most common questions you receive from prospective students and their families, and how do you respond?
"What do SLU students do on the weekends?" With over 150 student organizations there is always a plethora of things to do right on campus! Saint Louis University's on-campus facility, Chaifetz Arena, brings concerts, sporting events and national theatre acts to our student's back doors. But our center city location makes it very easy for our students to go cheer on the Cardinals or Rams downtown, see a Broadway show at the Fabulous Fox Theatre, or take the light rail over to the Delmar Loop area, voted one of the coolest streets in the U.S.!
