My mission is to create, innovate and manage various applications or databases used vastly throughout the Spelman community.  

My goal is that every encounter I have with faculty, student, and staff will leave them feeling that whatever the inquiry or problem is, they've had a pleasant, well-informed experience and a resolution or understanding.

Supporting The Office of Research, innovation, and Collaboration, known as ORIC, is a one-stop shop of four units that engage in undergraduate student support for research and training, evaluation, monitoring, and data, and providing evaluating mechanisms, environmental health, and safety compliance, and the lifecycle of grantsmanship while also keeping our phenomenal administrative professionals abreast of the changes related to day-to-day processes called the Administrative Professional Institute known as API.

API is a place to get training from internal departments, express concerns, uplift our peers, and much more.
