“I’ve always been passionate about working with young people.

As a Student Success and Career Coach, I hope that I can have a positive impact on Coker students. It is a privilege to travel with them on their journey of self-discovery.

I love the strong sense of community at Coker and in Hartsville. There really is something to this idea of “the Coker family.” Also, [I recommend that everyone] take some time to get off campus—kayak on Prestwood Lake, explore Kalmia Gardens, have coffee at Midnight Rooster, and sample the donuts from The Markette. I highly recommend the maple bacon.

My advice to students is to take advantage of the opportunities that Coker (and particularly the Student Success Center) offers. Career planning starts your first year in college. We can give you the tools for career planning but you have to commit to doing the work.”
