Why I Love UD

Choosing to attend UD was the best decision I could have made. My years here were filled with hard work and much effort, but also a lot of fun and fond memories I will always carry with me. There are many reasons I love UD, but the way it feels like home is what I love most! 


B.A. in Communication, University of Dayton
M.A. in Communication, University of Dayton

Originally from St. Louis, MO, I visited the University of Dayton for the first time in eighth grade when my older sister began her college search.  I immediately fell in love with the friendly campus environment and the strong sense of community.  I returned for a second look as a junior in high school and knew I had found my home. UD is an incredibly special place and I am proud to work here.  Outside of work I enjoy hanging out with my husband (fellow Flyer) and kids (future Flyers), being outdoors, and cooking.
