Why Duke OUSF?

As an NC native it was important to me to work in an environment that not only impacted the population of people I was directly serving, but a space that was committed to the advancement of the community at large. 

I was born and raised in rural North Carolina where all of my family originates, and being a first-generation, low income student is a large part of my journey to Duke. It is important to me to pay it forward and be a representation of the success that is possible with the right support and resources.

The best thing about working in OUSF is knowing that I am coming to the table with like-minded individuals who share my passion for providing students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to continue being high achievers beyond the campus of Duke.
