Her duties include recruitment, admissions, academic advising, social media management, marketing and communication, and student services.  She is the one student services person you will work with from admissions through graduation.   Ms. Hill received her Master of Public Administration in 2012 and her Bachelor of Business Administration in 2003.  Like many of our graduate students, she is also a mother, wife, veteran, and working professional.  She understands the ins and outs of balancing life and school and is happy to guide and support students through their graduate school journey.
