SYP Board: Chair
Employer: University of South Carolina Upstate
Position: Director of Advising and Career Enrichment Services for the Johnson College of Business and Economics


I’m pleased to serve Spartanburg Young Professionals as the chair of the executive board. My previous SYP involvement started as a committee member and then as the social committee chair. Prior to my commitment with the College of Business, I established the majority of my career in Student Affairs. For over a decade, I’ve worked in Higher Education empowering students to find the courage within to pursue new ways of thinking and accomplish the goals they’ve set for themselves. I’m particularly interested in talent attention, attraction and retention throughout Spartanburg County. I graduated from Marshall University in West Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Master of Science in Adult Education. I love serving my community as the facilitator for Spartanburg County and the City of Spartanburg’s Amplify LAUNCH Program (African American Business Accelerator).  I’m a proud 2020 graduate of Leadership Spartanburg and is a 2012 graduate of the Spartanburg County Foundation Grassroots Leadership Development Institute. My hope and goal is to support SYP’s mission by safely and effectively connecting and attracting a diverse group of young professionals as we recover from the impacts of a global pandemic.
