B.S. Counseling and Human Services, Northern Kentucky University


Dee, a proud native of Cincinnati, graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree in Counseling and Human Services from Northern Kentucky University in 2011. During her four years at NKU, Dee was involved with the Black Student Union, Choir, and a recreational dance team. Her experience working in the Admission office as a Tour Guide and her passion for helping students and families, led her to pursue a career in college admissions.

As a member of the Mount St Joseph University team Dee plans on working on her Master’s in Higher Education Student Affairs. In her free time, Dee enjoys cooking, solving puzzles, binge watching the latest TV show, and reading. The Mount attracted Dee because of its compelling Mission Statement. What resonated with her most was that members of the Mount community embrace diversity of cultures and beliefs and service to others.
