I grew up in the Beach Cities area of LA.  The moment I stepped onto USC’s campus, I knew it was the place for me.  I got my B.S. in Business and Cinematic Arts while working as a student in the Thornton School of Music.  After graduating, I traveled a bit and realized that I wasn’t done with USC.  It looks like USC wasn’t done with me either, because here I am!  I am thrilled to work with students and help them through this exciting time in their lives.  In my free time, I love taking my dogs to the beach, baking, traveling, and exploring LA – even when you’ve lived here all of your life, there is always something new to discover.

Why USC?
I like to say that USC embodies the phrase “work hard, play hard.”  Academically, we challenge our students and give them the resources and opportunities they need to pursue a variety of academic disciplines.  Do you want to be an engineer AND a musician?  You can do that at USC.  At the same time, we have a vibrant campus culture.  You can go to a football game one day, a jazz concert the next, and everything in between during the rest of the week.  Not to mention the fact that we’re in the middle of one of the biggest cities in the world, where the possibilities for culture and entertainment are endless.  It’s great to be on a campus where students really love their school.

Admission Advice:
Numbers only tell us so much.  Try to remember that there is a person reading your application, and we want to know who you are and what your story is.  Make sure to be yourself and use those essays and short answers to your advantage. That’s where we really get to know you.
