College Transfer Counselor

The Dougherty Family College restores hope for students who may have thought it is unrealistic, or even impossible, to attend college. If students have hope for their future, they can be motivated to succeed and persevere despite their obstacles and the hard work of obtaining their degree. DFC is intentionally designed for the individual and collective needs of our students, and this is truly remarkable. I deeply believe in the vision of DFC and I am dedicated to witness student success in their academic, professional, and personal lives.

Years ago, I began my academic journey as a young teen mother dreaming of attending college but did not have the financial resources to do so. Obstacles seemed to be everywhere, so my confidence and hope was very low. However, due to the support I received from several individuals to achieve my educational goals, today I am a devoted advocate for students confronted by similar challenges and holding onto the desire to successfully navigate through their academic journeys. I am excited, humbled, and feel so very blessed to join DFC, with the sincere hope to be an encouraging and supportive presence for our students, just as so many people have done for me!
