Biography

What did I study?
PhD, higher education and student affairs leadership
MA, English language and literature
BA, English and sports studies

What advice do I have for new students?
Don’t worry if you don’t know what your major is going to be the minute you walk through the door. Give yourself some time to explore, get to know the post-high school you, figure out what makes your brain jump up and go, “Ooh!” Then, decide.

What inspires me?
The people who came before me and the people who came after me. My parents and my children. One showed me how it should be, and the other shows me how it could be.

What is my favorite quote?
“The truth is rarely pure and never simple.” ― Oscar Wilde

What do I like to do in my free time?
Shoot baskets, shoot golf balls, watch dark and disturbing shows, watch my kids perform, read Stephen King, have long and interesting conversations, and write. Write. Write. Write.
