North Arkansas

Hello there! I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and graduated from Bartlett High School in 2010. The Natural State of Arkansas has always been my “next door” neighbor, but now I can finally say it’s my home! I graduated with a degree in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations and I am currently pursuing my Master’s of Science in school counseling at UCA!

Whenever students ask me about college choices, I always ask them a question in return. Where do you see yourself calling home for the next four years? I want my students to not only become passionate about their university but also counsel them on their investment when choosing a school.

At the University of Central Arkansas, you will find that our students consider UCA their home away from home. They are involved in all areas of campus and have the best relationships with their professors. I am stoked to be apart of this admissions team and I can’t wait to share all of my experiences here at UCA!
Go Bears!

In 2008, I graduated from high school in Russellville, Arkansas. My previous experiences at UCA and in the Conway community through Arkansas Model United Nations, Boys State, and Governor’s School were decisive factors in my choice to attend UCA as a freshman. While at UCA, I was afforded the opportunity to be a part of the nationally renowned Schedler Honors College. Additionally, I was also involved in Student Orientation Staff, Student Government Association, and I served as President of my Greek Fraternity.

Honors at UCA inspired in me a passion for both community and scholarship. This passion led me to graduate with a Bachelors of Science in Public Administration. After graduating from UCA I started a small business making custom furniture before pursuing a Masters in College Student Personnel at Arkansas Tech. While at Tech I served as a Resident Director for two different housing complexes. In 2015 I returned to UCA as an Admissions Counselor with a mission to help students maximize their opportunities at this remarkable university.

In 2010, I graduated from Quitman High School and attended UACCM upon graduation. I obtained an Associate of Science in Business in 2011 and became a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. I transferred to UCA to pursue a Bachelor of Business Administration in Management and became a UCA Alumna in December of 2014.

I currently live in Conway and have a beautiful one-year old daughter. I’m fluent in English and Spanish and I’m so honored to be a part of the Admissions family! My time here as a student was absolutely incredible and I’m so happy to help prospective students explore all that UCA has to offer!

Dallas, TX

I graduated from Benton High School in 2007 with several years of Spanish classes under my belt and a strong desire to be bilingual. This dream led me to UCA and I am so glad it did. UCA offered many opportunities I wouldn’t have had elsewhere and an unbelievable college experience.

While at UCA I was very involved in all things Honors, as well as other service-based student organizations. Through the Honors College and the College of Business, I was able to fund two study abroad trips to Costa Rica and Mexico that changed my life forever. Because of those trips, paired with the ability and confidence that my Spanish degree provided me, I moved to South America after graduation. I am fully fluent in Spanish and English and have lived out a life-long dream in Chile, working and exploring the continent for almost three years.

Now, I am thrilled to be a part of the admissions team at my alma mater. I can’t wait to share my incredible experiences at UCA with others, in the hopes that they will make the decision to attend UCA, and take advantage of all the wonderful and unique opportunities we can offer.
