I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and attended college not far from home. After a short stint in corporate America, I returned to my alma mater to begin my career in admissions. After 25 years and three distinctly different institutions, I am enjoying my experience at USC.


Why USC?

USC offers students so many opportunities inside and outside the classroom. It is amazing to see what students accomplish while they are here. It is even more amazing to see what they do with their USC experience once they leave this campus as ambassadors of the Trojan Family.


Admission Advice:

Take advantage of all the information provided to you through the application process. Admission officers are here to be a resource for you during this time. And relax, there is more than one perfect school. Open your mind to find the places where you will thrive.
