When did you start working at UJ?


Why did you decide to be in admissions?

I love University of Jamestown and wanted to share it with other students to show what an amazing place it is to get an education and prepare you for your future. They care about everyone wholeheartedly and it made the decision to be a part of the family very easy.

Why do you think students will love being a Jimmie?

They will feel instantly welcome here. This place has open arms to anyone. Being a Jimmie isn’t just to get you to a degree, they want you to be the best person that you can be. Your success in your dreams and future plans is something they want to help create.

What tips do you have for college success?

  1. Ask questions. Even if you think that it is extremely simple. The more questions you ask, the better UJ can make your experience.
  2. Take advantage of study options.They are in place to help you succeed. Tutors and professors are there for you.
  3. Get involved while in college, just because you are in one thing, doesn’t mean you can’t join another.
