Why You Like Working Here

I like working here because of the students. I think all the kids I get to work with are amazing and I love the diversity of campus.

Favorite EMU Moment

My favorite moment was when we went to the Bahamas Bowl with the football team in December of 2016. We work closely with the football team and their coaches and it was amazing to see all the hard work pay off.

Favorite Campus Spot

My office because I get to build one-on-one relationships with my athletes. It’s a safe space they can always come if something is wrong or if they need help with anything. I also love the other people in my office suite.

Next Goal

I’d like our team to compete at college nationals in Florida during April and place in the top 10 in the nation. There are usually 25 or so teams in each division. As far as I can tell, since I'm new to EMU and Michigan, it has been over 16 years since we competed anywhere.
