    About Me
    I'm a Florida native currently living, laughing and loving in the PNW. When not guiding students through the admissions process, I'm looking for a horse to pet, learning cool new rollerblade tricks or writing. My not-so hidden talents include being pretty good at latte art and knowing the lyrics to most songs from the early to mid-2000s.

    Favorite Campus Location

    The Fine Arts Library! The double-decker study cubbies are so cozy and unique really the perfect place to hunker down and get some work done.

    Favorite UF Fun Fact
    That we have a (free!) art museum on campus the Harn Museum. Not only does it have a variety of rotating exhibitions each year, its permanent collection boasts some real masterpieces, my favorite being Monet's "Oat Field."

    Admissions Advice
    Tell us everything! Well, OK, maybe not everything, but because we don't do interviews or read letters of recommendation, the application is really your one time to tell us about yourself and why you'd be a good fit for UF. We're not mind readers, and we're not going to assume anything about you, so if there's something you want us to know, definitely put it down on your application. The more detail the merrier, and the more of an insight into who you are as a person you can give us, the better. The same goes for your essay. Use this space to talk about yourself. It can be easy to veer off topic, just as it can be hard to talk about yourself. But your reader should come away from your essay knowing more about you than they did before they read it. Write about something you genuinely care about rather than something you think we want to hear. Keep it personal having someone proofread it is a good idea, but be sure to keep your unique voice at the forefront. Also, this isn't an assignment for your English class. We care less about sentence structure and grammar than we do learning about you (but like I said, proofreading is always a good idea!).

    For Students
    Experience UF by touring our campus (virtually) and by attending a virtual info session led by current students or one of our admissions representatives.
