B.A. in Architecture
University of Pennsylvania

New York – Westchester County, Rockland County, The Bronx
West Virginia

Boston born and Raleigh, North Carolina raised, I grew up having a foot in both New England and the South. I attended the University of Pennsylvania to study architecture. After graduating, I spent a year working for my alma mater in Undergraduate Admission before shifting gears and beginning what I thought was going to be a long path to becoming an architect. I quickly found out it was not for me and returned to work in admission in Washington, D.C. I’m incredibly happy to continue my career in undergraduate admission at USC and can’t wait to meet future Trojans!

Why USC?
USC’s vision of education is something I truly believe in – a more connected world, informed and engaged students, and a faculty that truly wants to be in the classroom, educating future world leaders. The melting pot of students will not just be your friends and classmates; they’ll be your support network, your business partners, and your family at a home away from home in the middle of our beautiful Los Angeles campus.

Admission Advice:
Proofread your application not just for grammar, but also for content. Paint a picture of your interests and experiences in high school – that’ll help us visualize how you’ll potentially spend your time at USC.
