Alma Mater:

Patrick Henry Community College


Martinsville, Virginia


I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, gardening, decorating and cooking. I'm also a Redskins fan, a member of Stone Memorial Christian Church and the Carillion Ringers Handbell Choir.

Favorite Place(s) on Campus:

Vaughn Chapel, Adams Lake and the Panther's Den in Franklin Hall

Favorite Panther Moment:

Some of my favorite moments have almost always been affiliated in some way with events like Panther Preview, PAWS or Check-In day. It is a lot of fun to work at these events together with my colleagues, including current (and past) work-study students, as well as meeting new students and their families!  It is very difficult to choose just one, but I think my most favorite moment has to be when a student who I have helped during their journey at Ferrum comes back after graduation to visit. Good times!

Why you should choose Ferrum:

You should choose Ferrum College because not only will it become your serenely beautiful "home away from home" (it's gorgeous!), but you will also find a sense of community here that is incomparable! All of our dedicated faculty and staff are eager to encourage you and give you the tools you need to achieve your dreams! As a bonus, you will make life-long friendships in the process that are simply priceless. You are going to love it here!
