With over 30 years of experience in the field of student affairs, meeting the student’s ever changing needs by developing new programs and new opportunities is most rewarding.  “I get to see students learn and grow every day, and I also learn and grow with them.  I also get to work each day with colleagues who unselfishly give of themselves in service to our students.”
