Admissions Manager

I have a combined 10 years of admissions and customer service experience. I am passionate about helping students find their best academic fit. I believe that a proper education empowers students to make the most of their abilities.

I was born and raised in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area by two Nigerian parents. I have a Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. I am currently pursuing my Master of Arts in Higher Education Administration from Sam Houston State University. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling and spending time with family.

 Prior to my time with BISW, I spent more than four years at The University of Texas at Arlington where I managed recruitment efforts for first-year college students. I joined the BISW team in January 2019.  In my current role, I assist students and their families with the application process.
