VA Education Counselor, 615-460-6871

As a staff member in Belmont’s Office of the Registrar, one of my goals as a School Certifying Official for veteran educational benefits is to make the process easier for veterans who want to return to school.

As the daughter of a veteran, I especially enjoy meeting veterans and hearing their stories.

My father served in the Navy at the end of World War II and went back to school on the GI Bill in the 1950’s. I grew up knowing about the passion for earning an education. I earned my undergraduate degree as an adult student, so I also know how hard it is to take that first step and return to school.

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.
