VA Education Counselor, 615-460-6871

As Belmont’s school certifying official, my goal for veterans and their dependents has been to make the process of understanding and using VA educational benefit as smooth as possible. Belmont University is a wonderfully enriching learning community, and I look forward to the opportunities to serve you throughout your enrollment.

As a Belmont alumna, and someone who pursued her degree while balancing numerous life commitments, I understand how hard it can be to take the first step to continue your education. I feel blessed and honored to serve veterans as they follow their dreams of accomplishing a university education.

My father served in the Navy at the end of World War II, and then attended college using the GI Bill. From watching both my parents, I learned the value of a college education and it has been a passion of mine to help others succeed in their academic endeavors.

Associate Registrar, 615-460-6325

As an Associate Registrar, one of my roles in the Office of the Registrar is serving as a School Certifying Official for veteran educational benefits. I have enjoyed assisting veterans and their family members with utilizing their education benefits for nearly ten years.

I assist new students with applying for education benefits, ensure VA students are fully aware of their responsibilities with maintaining their benefits, and certify enrollment to VA for eligible students.

As a native of Nashville, Tennessee, daughter of two educators and wife of an educator, I value the importance of learning, receiving an enriching academic experience, and achieving a degree. My passion for education led to my career choice in higher education. Helping students to strive and meet their educational goal is my purpose. Participating in professional organizations such as Tennessee Education Association of Veteran Program Administrators and Association of Veterans Education Certifying Officials keeps me informed on VA education programs so I may share available information with VA students.
