My name is Julie Lanford and I am from the small town of Woodruff, SC. I graduated from SMC in 2007 with an Associate in Arts degree. While attending SMC I was a student worker for the Admissions and Financial Aid offices. From SMC I transferred to Anderson University where I completed my bachelor’s degree in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations and Advertising. After graduating from AU I returned to SMC in May 2009 as an admissions counselor. I am currently perusing a M.B.A. at Gardner Webb University. I love meeting new people and helping them out anyway I can. Hence why I enjoy my job so much! Feel free to contact me with questions you may think of during your college search.
