Favorite thing about Potomac State College:

I love that Potomac State College allows you the opportunity to really connect with other students and the community in a small college setting. I think it’s important to build strong relationships with other students, your professors, and other campus staff that are here to help you to make the most of your time here at PSC. I also love that PSC is close to some pretty cool places so always take the chance to explore!

Favorite thing about your job:

I love being able to work with many different people and departments coordinating events. I enjoy helping students as they navigate a new chapter of their life starting college at PSC because I know change isn’t always easy. My goal is to make the transition to a PSC student as smooth as possible and hopefully a little fun! I like to ask a lot of questions when I’m doing something new so I hope that students and parents will always feel comfortable coming to me with questions where I can be helpful.

Advice for students:

Always use all the resources available to you to get to know the campus and what PSC can offer you. We are all happy to help. Please don’t wait to let someone know if you’re having trouble finding information or need some extra guidance. We offer a lot of support not just during the admissions process, but also as a student here on campus (or online). Don’t be afraid to try something new!

When you’re not working, you’re:

When I’m not working I am usually spending time with my family. I like to read books and travel to new places. I love to try new restaurants and also frequent my favorites. On lazy days, I enjoy watching movies and shows with a bowl of popcorn.
