Professional Achievements

In 2014, awarded "Largest Increase in Total Sales" for the Georgia/North Carolina region by Barnes & Noble.

In 2015, awarded "Outstanding Non-Textbook Sales Increase" by Barnes & Noble, for the largest increase in merchandise sales across the entirety of the company's 800+ college bookstores.  

Institutional Service and Responsibilities

My staff and I partner with Lees-McRae faculty and staff to provide our students with all of the rental textbooks they will require for their courses by the first day of classes, at a flat, competitively-priced rate. I also work closely with Lees-McRae staff to design all of our emblematic apparel and gifts. By far the best part of my job, however, is hosting student activities such as V.I.P. Shopping Night and De-Stress-Fest, and getting to know and serve our student body.  

Personal Interests

Communication is key! I will always find a way to help our students, alumni, faculty and staff if they will reach out to me. My staff and I are here for you and want to help you succeed; whether it's finding the perfect sweatshirt for Mom or Dad, or that textbook you've forgotten to order until the last minute, we can help with that.
