Senior Assistant Dean
BiographyAndrea earned her MS Ed in Higher Education from Southern Illinois University and a BS in Management Information Systems from Winston-Salem State University. Before coming to Carolina, she held student affairs positions at Duke University, The University of South Carolina and The University of Illinois. Andrea is an award-winning academic advisor who believes each student possesses a set of unique strengths, talents and abilities; each one needs to feel connected to the University, know how to find and use appropriate resources, and have the confidence to make their own life decisions. Her calling is to inspire Carolina students to explore beyond the familiar, to engage fully in their curricular and co-curricular pursuits, and to empower them to envision greater possibilities. Andrea lives in Durham and has a large and rambunctious extended family in Statesville, NC who she considers to be some of her greatest life teachers and beloved friends. During quiet times, you may find her reading a good book, listening to jazz music or watching well-written television shows.
