INTRODUCTION

Your college search may be a little different at the moment, but I am here to guide you through it all! Allow me to walk you through each step of the college admissions process, and help you and your family conquer any challenges you may face. Eastern Illinois University offers many opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience both academically and recreationally, as well as provides students the tools for success for years to come. I look forward to welcoming you to the EIU family, future Panther!

About me: I am a mama of four future Panthers, two sons and two daughters. I have been an Admissions Counselor for 10+ years, and recieved my Master's degree through EIU's online graduate program in 2023!

Advice for students: College is an opportunity to find your true self. Get involved, try something new, and always keep an open mind. 

Favorite place on campus: Aside from the food court (I love Chick-fil-A!), Old Main is my favorite building. The Admissions Office is housed here, and it looks like a castle!

My EIU Story

I started at EIU in 2018 and fell in love from the moment I stepped into Old Main. The very first person I met was the President, who warmly welcomed me! Everyone at EIU is so friendly, and truly cares about you, your well-being, and your future successes. My colleagues are like family, and we work hard together to help each other out and lift each other up. Last year, I received my masters from EIU, and can now proudly say I am an EIU alum!
