I am the Associate Registrar of Enrollment Services, and oversee the Enrollment & Registration Services Centers at all six campuses. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from University of Mississippi and currently pursuing a Master’s of Science in Sports Management from Troy University.

Prior to my arrival at Georgia State University, I worked at Florida State University in Employee Relations and previously played in the National Football League (NFL). In my professional football career, I played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Francisco 49ers.  I have learned what it means to be a team player and I apply it every day in our Enrollment & Registration Services Center and Call Center. The Enrollment & Registration Services Center and Call Center is my playing field and I try to assist students, alumni, and staff in winning each day.

Georgia State University is an exciting and vibrant campus in.  My team and I look forward to serving you with all your Enrollment Services needs in the areas of Financial Aid, Registrar, and Student Accounts. Our vision statement is “To foster a rewarding and collaborative environment where our services are an exciting option for students, alumni and staff.”

I am an Associate Registrar in the Office of the Registrar, for the Academic Records and Graduation Review and Diploma Services Offices. I received an Associate degree from Atlanta Metropolitan College and a Bachelor of Science degree from Clayton State University. During my tenure here at the University, I have played an integral role with systems management and with implementing academic policy.

It is my belief that more things are accomplished with a collaborative team effort. Each day, it is the goal of the Academic Records, Graduation Review and Diploma Services Offices to work together to provide excellent customer service to students, faculty and staff. What is distinct about this unit is that we have the opportunity to interact and impact the lives of students as they complete their journey to obtain a degree.

During and even after our students’ collegiate careers, there will come a time when they will have to pounce on an opportunity quickly and I can guarantee that my staff and I will be more than willing to assist.
