Why did you choose Fairmont State? 

I chose to work at Fairmont State because I love working with students, and helping them achieve their academic goals.  One of Fairmont State’s slogans is “Welcome Home.”  I wanted to be a part of a learning community that truly feels like a family, in a place that really does feel like home.  I quickly was able to see the Falcon Family as just that, a family.  The level of care I have seen for our students is just like being at home!

What is your favorite spot on campus?

I like to sit outside in front of the Turley Center.  Watching the fountain and students go from class to class is so peaceful!

What is your best piece of advice for prospective students?

Submit paperwork (application, transcripts, test scores, scholarship applications, FAFSA, etc.) for every school you are interested in.  It is easier to have everything in place and decide rather than needing to pull things together last minute.

Other than your major, what Fairmont State major do you find most interesting?

I think Forensic Science and Aviation would both be fascinating to study!

What is a fun fact about yourself?

My dad was a DJ when I was a kid, and I used to do commercials for him.
