“Hello, welcome to Residence Life & Housing, this is Lisa, how may I help you?” In the summer of 2008 I joined Residence Life & Housing as Staff Assistant, and I have been saying that ever since – and loving it. I am here to answer any questions you may have about life at Wake Forest University and if I don’t know the answer I will get it for you.
I am the daughter of Wake Forest grads, the wife of a Wake Forest grad, the parent of Wake Forest grads and a Wake Forest graduate myself, so I can look at RL&H issues from many different angles. I have lived in Bostwick, Babcock, Luter (“new dorm” back then), and even the North Campus Apartments (I was a baby at the time—they were still the Faculty Apartments), so I am familiar with what makes the campus a wonderful place to live.
So give me a call, I am here to help parents and students alike have a great living experience at Wake Forest University!
Coordinator of Housingimbodeam@wfu.edu
I came to Wake Forest in the fall of 2007 as an undergraduate student. After completing my B.A. double major in both Anthropology and Religion, I was fortunate enough to be hired as a full-time staff member in February 2012.
My working relationship with Residence Life and Housing spans several years with time spent as a student worker and Resident Adviser prior to transitioning into my staff role. I currently work as Coordinator of Housing within the office handling aspects of the residential facilities of a campus I have grown to call home.
Outside of work I enjoy playing soccer and working with leather, spending time with friends, all manner of hiking and camping and working in the Campus Garden.
If you feel so inclined, swing by the office and say hello!

My name is Cherise James and I am the Residence Life Coordinator for South Campus.

I received my Bachelors of Science degree in public relations from the College of Journalism and Communication at the University of Florida. After completing my studies at UF, I worked as a full time professional for a privatized housing company where I was responsible for running the housing program of a small fashion school in Atlanta, GA. After this brief hiatus, I returned to the Ft. Lauderdale area where I earned my masters in College Student Affairs with an emphasis in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from Nova Southeastern University.

Access System Administratorjonesgl@wfu.edu
Hi I’m Gina Jones! I have been with Wake Forest University since April, 1997. I began in the WFU Police Department, moved to Wake Forest Properties and I now work with Residence Life and Housing as an Access System Administrator. I work with an awesome group that ensures the security of our campus through Electronic Physical Security. This includes the implementation and maintenance of card readers, card access and scheduling, door locks, panic buttons and camera systems. I am so excited to be back on campus and working with the students on a daily basis!
Through my involvement with the Police Department, I became a Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) instructor. Working with female students in this capacity is a strong passion of mine as I believe it brings out the awareness, knowledge and strength that women already have.
During my downtime, I enjoy relaxing with family and friends. In the past, I have played softball and ridden horses. From time to time I still get to enjoy those things. I have two children that are very involved in sports --they certainly keep me moving and I love it!
Assistant Director of Residence Educationmoreaugw@wfu.edu
Hello everyone! I am very excited to be a part of the Wake Forest community and the Residence Life & Housing team! My role as the Assistant Director of Residence Education enables me to serve the community in a variety of ways. The training, development, and selection processes for our staff and the coordination of various student programming initiatives are a significant portion of my responsibilities. However, I am also involved with student organizations, such as RSA and NRHH, assessment practices within the department, our Theme Housing program, and developing partnerships with faculty and other campus departments.
Before I had the opportunity to come to Winston-Salem, I was fortunate enough to work as a Residence Life Coordinator at Towson University, which is near Baltimore, Maryland. I completed my graduate program in 2007 at the University of South Carolina and received a Masters of Education in Higher Education & Student Affairs. At my undergraduate institution, Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA, I studied History/Government and Philosophy/Political Thought.
Whether you are involved in Residence Life & Housing or not, I hope you stop by my office in Room 104, Alumni Hall and say hello!

As the Administrative Coordinator for Housing, I work specifically to help make sure students have the best experience possible living on campus. In the daily course of my job, I help with a multitude of problems or concerns regarding rooms or residence halls in general. I have to say, working with students is the very best part of being at Wake Forest University.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, volunteering at Brenner’s Children’s Hospital and reading as much as I can squeeze in.
