Major: Business Communications

How what you studied connects with your career: I chose to study Business Communications. I was really interested in seeing how more targeted, effective communications could be utilized within an office. I see this trait being a true asset, especially within the world of admission. Listening, targeted messaging, and making sure you provide students and families with information specifically directed to their needs is essential.

How you started in admission and came to Richmond: My journey to admissions started with being very involved in the campus community in college. I served as an ambassador to admissions and I also served as student body president. I have always had a passion for helping others fulfill their dreams and aspirations. After more than ten years in the finance industry, I found a career in higher education. Coming to Richmond was a welcomed opportunity. I love the fact that our institution gives students real-life experiences and the application of what you’ve learned before you leave our campus.

Favorite restaurant off-campus: Pho So 1 (Vietnamese)

Hobbies/Interests: I’m a total foodie and I love to travel. I am drawn to people and culture. I enjoy walking and being the animal lover that I am – my shih-tzu/poodle is my life.
