Why You Like Working Here

I love working with students. It’s the first place I’ve worked where I felt like I could contribute.

Favorite EMU Moment

The first time a student came to me and said they wouldn’t be getting their degree without my help.

Favorite Campus Spot

I think the park and the Lake House are really pretty.


The students really inspire me. I learn so much from them. I think I get as much from them as they get from me.

Surprising Fact

I used to own a custom motorcycle.

Next Goal

Here at EMU, I want to help as many students as I possibly can. Personally, I’d love to be a better artist. I paint, sew, crochet, cook and do paper arts.
