Enrollment Counselor

Hi! My goal is to help you succeed at MTSU by answering any questions you have and getting you to the right people that can help this transition to college to be an easy one. Students entering college from foster care and independent status have many unique challenges to overcome. With the help of our mentors and members of Next Step, we'll guide you through the application, financial aid, housing, and other resources that you may need. Through Next Step, you'll also meet other successful MTSU students from similar backgrounds that are eager to share their experiences with you. Once you decide on a major, you will be assigned a faculty advisor within that area that can provide you with information about internships, research opportunities, and careers or graduate work in your field. In the meantime, and anytime after, come by the office or call me to set up a time when we can talk about how Next Step can help you succeed here at MTSU. My door is always open!
