She moved from the quantitative side of research to the qualitative side and worked as a Focus Group Moderator for a few years before becoming a counselor, adjunct instructor, and life coach. She joined Patrick Henry College (PHC) as Senior Admissions Counselor with the goal of helping connect the next generation of godly leaders to a learning experience that will grow them academically, emotionally, and spiritually—and, equip them to impact their respective spheres of influence with Truth and Spirit.
