Transfer to Teal Student Tour Guides 2017-2018




 Hey there, my name is Courtney! I am from Albany, New York. I am a senior majoring in Psychology and am currently prepping for law school. I received my Associate’s in Science degree in Human Services from a community college back home in New York.

I transferred here Fall 2016! I live on campus with three roommates and I am currently involved in the Transfer to Teal program! I put a lot of time into keeping my grades up and love to spend time with my family. This campus has plenty of opportunities for whatever you are interested in and I am very excited to meet and welcome all of you to UNCW! Go Seahawks!




 I was born in New York City, and raised in the Bronx, NY. I attended CUNY College of Staten Island before I joined the Army. I married my high school sweetheart in 2009, who is also a Marine. We have two of the most wonderful kids (I may be a little biased), Xavier (4) and Olivia (2). I transferred to UNCW in the summer of 2017 as a Biology major from Campbell University Camp Lejeune Extension. I am a pre-health student (PA/MD).

On my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends, going to the beach, impromptu road trips, and shadowing physicians. I also volunteer with Pender County EMS/Fire and do yoga to keep my sanity! 




 Hi my name is Emily! I am a rising senior at UNCW. I transferred here from Randolph Community College which is located in my hometown Asheboro, North Carolina. I currently live off campus with my roommate. She has a dog named Cammi who I love very much. I love to go to the beach, hang out with my friends and sisters. I am majoring in International Studies. I would like to teach English as a second language in another country. I have a passion for the outdoors so I would like to incorporate that into my professional career. 




 Hi! My name is Danielle and this is my first semester at UNCW. I moved to Wilmington in May 2017 after completing my associate’s degree from Wake Tech in Raleigh and am so excited to begin my journey to a bachelor’s degree. After working in a preschool, I realized that what I really wanted was to work with children while simultaneously helping them. Play therapy became an option. I researched the field a little more and decided that the only way to get there was to go back to school. I began my journey of completing my associate’s degree. I always knew UNCW was here, I knew a few people that graduated from UNCW, and it was always in the back of my mind. But the minute I stepped on campus, I felt at home. I loved everything about this place; from the ponds on campus to Chancellor’s walk to the sea hawk out front and especially the fact that the beach is ten minutes away. I knew that I needed to be here and a year later, my two cats and I are here. I hope you find your passion here as well and have the chance to enjoy all the opportunities UNCW has to offer!




 Hello everyone! I am originally from Salisbury, Maryland, where I was born and raised.  I transferred to UNCW in the fall of 2016 after getting my Associate’s degree from Wor-Wic Community College. I am currently a senior, majoring in Recreational Therapy. After completing my Bachelor’s degree at UNCW, I plan to complete my Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy and who knows, maybe one day my Doctorate!

Currently I am living on campus and I have to say it was a great choice, being new to UNCW and Wilmington in general. In my free time I enjoy volunteering with individuals with special needs. There’s nothing better than seeing an individual light up when they get something right! I’m currently involved in the Transfer to Teal tour program, and I am a mentor for a transfer specific class on campus. UNCW has truly become my new home and I hope one day you will feel the same!
