Why did you choose to attend Flagler?

My Mom graduated from Flagler College and met my Dad while here in St. Augustine. I was always encouraged to attend but didn’t truly fall in love with the college and town until I visited my junior year of high school. Since then, I have dreamed of working at my alma mater and couldn’t be happier to be a part of the admissions team!

Favorite St. Augustine activity

My family and I enjoy going to the beach, the Alligator Farm, and exploring historic downtown with all its unique locally owned shops and restaurants.

Tip(s) for incoming students

Create new opportunities for yourself by getting involved with clubs and organizations. But also know your limits for studying and when to ask for help. We have amazing resources here at Flagler College!

Tip(s) for applicants

The power of social media is real…make sure you are portraying the same person you are describing on your college application and in your essays.
