Best residence life memory: I LOVE hall openings and orientation. I remember each from the past nine years. I have a lot of fun meeting and interacting with all the students and their friends and family.

The best thing about my job is: I really enjoy visitors in my office and I like visiting students in the halls too. Through these interactions I get to know so many students and am able to work with them to achieve their college success goals.

Best Part about being a Coach: I have always been a fan of the break through performances in sports, and my goal as a coach is to help our student athletes to do things that they themselves didn't even think was possible! My coaching does not stop once I step off the track either, I hope to help develop our student athletes to their greatest potential both on and off the track; because well rounded individuals not only make better athletes but better functioning members of their communities.

Best Part about being an RHD: I really enjoy meeting new people! Please feel free to come by my office or stop me in the halls to talk! I hope to help in any way possible so that the students will thoroughly enjoy their stay at Mount Marty College.
