Director of Admissions
Phone: 724-836-9885

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to view our pages and learn more about our admissions team at Pitt-Greensburg.

In my role as Director, I'm fortunate to meet many wonderful students and families every day.  I witness how Pitt-Greensburg empowers students and helps them become the people they want to be.  I love working at a campus that nurtures students and helps them become problem solvers and engaged citizens.  I hope you will visit campus soon and learn more about all we have to offer!

In my free time, I enjoy reading a good book on the shores of Lake Erie in summer, spectating collegiate athletics, and meeting new people.  I have raised 3 children of my own, and have helped them to navigate through their college years, and lives in general.  I consider it a privilege to guide students through all stages of the admissions process, and look forward to working with you!
