Favorite thing about being southern: I love everything about being southern honestly, its hard to pick just one, lol. The sights, sounds, people, customs, food. I believe my southern values deeply rooted in faith and family helped shaped me into the person I am today.

What is your personal life motto:

Love God, Love People

What is the most challenging professional obstacle you have had:

My most challenging professional obstacle thus far would have to be right at the beginning of my career, when I accepted a position out of state but it didn’t work out the way that I planned and I eventually moved back to South Carolina. I was devastated. A few weeks later after moving back however, I interviewed for and accepted another position that I loved, so everything worked out. I have the badge from that very first position in my possession as a reminder to me that God’s plans for us are so much greater than our own.

What do you love about non profit and service oriented work?

I love that in service and non profit work, the fruits of your labor can be visibly seen as it impacts the quality of life for others. More specifically with the work that we do in TRIO, it is amazing to see the growth in our students as well as the academic and career success that they experience during their time in the program and beyond. The work we do is definitely rewarding and receiving a thank you in the form a thank you note, hug, or a quick call from a student is icing on the cake.

Who is your favorite character a “Different World”?

Hands down Whitley Gilbert.

What do you love about your hometown?

My hometown of Denmark is a very special place full of history. My maternal family has resided there for many generations. Everyone knows everyone  and will  stop and hold on a conversation with you. What I love most is the fact that whenever I go to visit it is as if I have never left.

What is your favorite southern dish?

 Grits, I have loved them from a very young age. I am a breakfast/ brunch girl and will eat grits at any and every meal if you let me.

If you could meet any famous , who would it be?

 Lady O, Oprah Winfrey. Because who doesn’t love Oprah!

What did you love about growing up in the south?

Appreciating the simple things that life has to offer.

What are some of your favorite southern brands?

Cheerwine soda. It is the absolute best. Since I live in Missouri now I can only have it when I visit SC.

When you want to take a day trip in the south, what is your go to place?

My favorite day trip has been and always will be the beach. I love Edisto Beach in SC. It is a family friendly beach, and never really crowded. It is my thinking place where I usually write and catch my second wind.
