As the Director of Campus Administration, Florida, I am responsible for term course schedules and provide campus supervision and support in the areas of admissions, career and professional development, registration, financial aid, graduation, veterans’ benefits, and international student programs. I also support student programs, including orientation, student organization fairs, the distinguished and career-related speaker series, and honors convocation. 

I am a magna cum laude graduate of WMU-Cooley Law School and previously served as an assistant public defender for Florida’s 13th Judicial Circuit. I also worked as a legal intern with the WMU-Cooley Innocence Project. In addition, I worked as a paralegal with Catania & Catania, PA, and served as a legal assistant with Stolbert & Townsend, PA, both in Tampa, Florida.

I have been involved as a volunteer with several Tampa area organizations including, Palabra De Vida Church Ministry, Everyday Blessings, Trinity Café-Dining with Dignity, and A Kid’s Place.  
I earned my bachelor’s degree in criminology from the University of South Florida and a master’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Central Florida.
