My name is Kimberly Thornton and I am the Director of Admissions. I am from the Shreveport/Bossier area and have worked at LSU Shreveport since 2004 in Student Life.

Tara Brando Sullivan, Assistant Director of Admissions & Recruitment
Hello there! My name is Tara Brando Sullivan and I am thrilled to serve as the Assistant Director of Admissions. My main focus is working with future undergraduate students of LSUS, with the assistance of our Admissions Counselors. One of my favorite roles that I have is leading New Student Orientation with the help of our amazing Orientation Leaders, Admissions team, and the Student Ambassadors. I am a proud Shreveport native and happy to be able to serve the community in this capacity. To me, there is nothing better than being able to watch a student grow and thrive in the collegiate environment from freshman to graduate. I truly enjoy meeting with students and their parents to discuss how LSUS can play a part in their education and goals. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions, or just want to talk about the opportunities that await you here at Louisiana State University Shreveport!

I am here to help answer any questions you may have about the school, and to make the admissions process be as smooth as possible for you. I hope that your experience at LSU Shreveport will be just as memorable as mine was!
