Campus office: 214 Leadership Studies Building


We are all teachers, leaders and learners. I love connecting and building relationships with people. If we don't take the time to learn about peoples hopes, dreams and aspirations ... how can we make learning relevant toward their goal attainment? What excites me about my work is that my role allows me to be a teacher, coach and mentor. My promise to all of my students is, "I'll know your name and I'll ask you what it is that makes your heart beat?"
