Meet the Staff

Aylesha J. Gurley

Graduate Hall Director


Aylesha Gurley is from Warner Robins, Ga and was born in Merced, California. She attended Valdosta State as an undergraduate, and appreciated her experience so much, she stuck around! Aylesha decided to continue her educational career and professional development here for Grad School , and she is  a second year Marriage and Family Therapy Intern and a veteran in the Housing and Residence Life Department. She is a huge family persona and live off of caffeine and shareable warmth.  Some of her hobbies and interest  include self care practices, mindfulness practices, skill building: communication with self and others, road trips, animal interactions, and literally anything that makes her smile that day. She is forever grateful (Thank you, God) for allowing her this opportunity to outreach to VSU's campus once more.
