Campus Health Services - Assistant Director


"Just as I work to promote and create opportunities for healthy living in and out of the classroom for our students, it is imperative to continue that same work with colleagues, faculty, staff and collaborating partners at UNC- Chapel. The work on this campus could not possibly be done alone because the sphere of influence is infinite. Consequently, I am committed to the work of UNC’s Carolina Black Caucus because I believe one’s individual location means little relative to a collective collaboration, as we work to make our campus a proactive and involved agent of change."

Data Manager of the Oral Viral Pathogenesis Group


I feel fortunate to be a member of the UNC research community. Research is so vital to all our lives, and UNC has an international presence that gives us an opportunity to help so many people. I am truly thankful for the part we play in enriching lives.

“UNC is a great university with a southern touch. The climate, food, sporting life, business opportunities, and warmness of the people make for a relaxing and empowering environment. As a Philly native, I boldly claim North Carolina my home. Many are brought here for various reasons. I hold true to the quote, 'Bloom where you are planted'."
