Associate Director of Admissions & International Students Counselor
I’m a 2009 graduate of Allegheny College and a world traveler. During my four years as a student at Allegheny, I double majored in political Science and French. Having spent my junior year in France, I am very passionate about encouraging students to study languages and spend a semester or year abroad. As a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority, Phi Sigma Iota Honor Society, Allegheny Swimming and Diving Team, and Phonathon Team, I feel strongly about students getting involved in campus activities and exploring their passions and interests. Having grown up in Europe, attended college in Pennsylvania, and now working in North Carolina, I believe in students trying new experiences, discovering new places and gaining friends from wherever they go.
Susan schedules all campus visits and really keeps the Admissions Office running! She has worked at Mars Hill for over 20 years so she knows the campus, faculty, staff, and students well. Give her a call at 828-689-1201 to schedule your campus visit. When you arrive on campus you will be greeted by Susan and she will get you ready for the day!

I grew up in Madison County and graduated from East Tennessee State University, majoring in history and minoring in political science. I have been married since 2014.

Daytime Admissions Counselor Assisting transfer, nursing and spring students.
I’m an Honors graduate of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications with a minor in American Sign Language. I was fortunate to have two wonderful college experiences as I started my undergraduate studies in Marketing at East Tennessee State University. As a once transfer student and now transfer counselor, I feel confident in helping ensure a smooth and efficient transfer process. During college I worked in the office of Community Health, played intermural volleyball and racquetball, and was inducted into the Lambda Pi Eta honor society as a lifetime member. I’m so thankful to be a part of a strong campus community and believe in the transformative power of higher education. I look forward to assisting future Mars Hill University Mountain Lions as they matriculate.

I am a 2018 graduate from Mars Hill University where I majored in Biology with a concentration in Biomedical studies.

I was very involved in many organizations on campus and truly believe that Mars Hill has a little something for everyone and I look forward to helping students find out what that looks like for them.

I graduated from Mars Hill in May of 2018 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. If you really want an inside look at student perspective, I have the scoop. While participating heavily in the arts at Mars Hill, I was also involved on campus as a Student Ambassador and First Year Mentor. The kinds of connections and opportunities I was afforded at Mars Hill are tremendous. I look forward to sharing these experiences with potential students. At Mars Hill, I found a community of professors, classmates and even staff that have been dedicated to my success. This community was so important to me, I just couldn’t bear to leave it. I hope to help you start your journey to joining this Mars Hill family.

I am a 2011 graduate of Liberty University, where I majored in sport management. During my time there, I participated in intramural basketball. After college I coached varsity women’s basketball for two years at Trinity Academy of Raleigh in Raleigh, NC. I am from Salisbury, NC, and enjoy playing/watching basketball, watching football, bowling, going out to dinner, and meeting new friends. I feel that I can definitely relate with young adults and share my experiences that could ultimately help students succeed in school as well as professionally.
