I Am UWG
Years at UWG: None. It’s only been about 6 months.
My job title: Communications Specialist.
What I really do: Share with the media all of the greatness going on at UWG through press releases and human interest stories .
Birthplace: Atlanta, GA.
Family: An amazing husband, Hylan. No kids yet, but it’s definitely a part of the plan. My parents, grandparents, godmother, sister and aunts are all rock stars in my life.
People describe me as: Outgoing, creative, stubborn and passionate.
My favorite things to do: Travel, spa days, dance, horseback riding, zip lining and finding ways to better myself in an effort to better others.
My proudest accomplishment: Learning how to be myself regardless of how uncomfortable it may be in some situations.
My passion: Helping and motivating others.
My pet peeve: Liars and broken promises.
Before UWG, I: Was a radio talk show host, news reporter and on-air traffic reporter for the top three stations in Montgomery, Ala.
I joined UWG because: It feels like a home away from home.
I stay because: The ladies in my office make me laugh at least twice a day and since I believe laughter is the best medicine that definitely makes the job that much better.
The best advice I ever received: Don’t worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself.
When I was a child, I wanted to be: A television news reporter. I always thought I could be the next Monica Kaufman at Channel 2.
Most people don't know that: I would love to be a motivational speaker.
My favorite quotation: “I don’t give because I have, I have because I give.”
The book I think everyone should read: The Bible.
The movie I think everyone should watch: The Pursuit of Happyness.
My favorite memory: Spending time with my Grandfather (Taylor) is always unforgettable and priceless. He’s wise and entertaining at the same time.
The person (alive or dead) I’d most like to meet: Oprah Winfrey.
What I would most like to have if castaway on an island: Music on my iPod.
What I would do if I won the lottery: Start a foundation that focuses on college retention with African American males and first generation students. Of course I have to pay bills, take care of parents and a big trip—you know, all the basics.
What I most want to contribute to students: A sense of hope that all things are possible if they believe.
Although you didn’t ask, I’d like to tell you anyway: I aim to drink a gallon of water a day. At least 74 ounces, if I don’t make a gallon.
