Based at Pellissippi State Community College’s Hardin Valley Campus, I help students from all PSCC campuses transfer to the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. I have been working with transfer students for five years and I find it rewarding because I like helping people achieve their dream of earning a college degree.

I am a first-generation college, a military veteran and a non-traditional student. The GI Bill enabled me to get an education that I thought was out of reach financially. I have a lot in common with the students who come my way, and I draw on my experience as both student and transfer coordinator to assist them with questions regarding admission, transfer credit, financial aid, scholarships and housing, for instance.

I am also proud to represent the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, the state’s flagship university and one of the nation’s top public universities. In particular, I love the location. UT is in the heart of Knoxville, a thriving city with a lot of charm and hospitality.

If you are a Pellissippi State student with questions about transfer, please contact me. It doesn’t matter if you are in your first semester or your last semester at Pellissippi State. I am always glad to talk to prospective students about their hopes and aspirations at UT Knoxville.

I’m a native Memphian who graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication. I earned my master’s degree from the University of Memphis. I have been working in higher education since 2014, and I love working for the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. My favorite things about UT include the traditions and campus pride. I enjoy working with prospective students, telling them about Knoxville and all that our institution has to offer!

I am originally from Unicoi County in East Tennessee and currently live in Boyds Creek (Seymour) with my lovely wife, Dr. Shannon Sullivan, and our son, Tanner. I have more than 15 years’ experience teaching and coaching at the high school level, and more than a decade experience in higher education. My family and I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, fishing, and of course, following the Tennessee Volunteers sports teams.

I work with students from our local community colleges who are interested in transferring to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville to continue their education. The campuses I primarily serve are Roane State, Walters State, Northeast State, Chattanooga State, and Cleveland State. I enjoy working with all of our community college partners and students. If I can ever be of any assistance to you or someone you know, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am excited to be part of the UT Transfer Center team and look forward to helping many future Volunteers become part of the Big Orange Family. Go Vols!
