I grew up in the Dayton area and I came to the University of Dayton after receiving my associate degree from Sinclair Community College. After graduating from UD, I spent a couple of months in Central America. Upon returning to the US, I moved straight into community development and banking. Now back at UD, I have the pleasure of welcoming students and parents to the UD family, in addition to helping families navigate through the admission and financial aid process. 

Why I Love UD

What opportunities our students have! Whether its academics, internships, service, study abroad, spiritual and/or personal growth, the experiences you have at UD are awesome!  The friendly and welcoming atmosphere that one feels on campus is second to none.  Anyone who has attended UD or is affiliated with UD will all tell you that we are one big family.
