DeeDee was attracted to the Mount because of its community and family-feeling. “When I came on my first interview to the Mount, I knew it was the perfect fit for me.” Growing up in a small town DeeDee was attracted to the size of the school and the many positive interactions she shared with faculty and staff instantly, and most importantly she could see herself being able to make a difference in numerous departments of the University. “I am very thankful for the opportunity that I have been given in the office of admissions. Also, I am eager to go out into the community and to educate prospective students about Mount St. Joseph University and serve as a steady resource to them as they navigate through the admissions process and while becoming a Lion.”
