Interests and Expertise

Wesley began working in Campus Recreation during his undergraduate degree at Indiana University. After graduating from Indiana, he went on to the University of Central Florida where he worked as the facilities graduate assistant for UCF Recreation and Wellness while completing a master's degree in Higher Education. Since then, he has worked at North Carolina State University, the University of California Santa Cruz, and most recently Stanford University where he was the Director of Recreation Facilities and Sustainability. 

Wesley is passionate about wellness, fitness, sustainability, the environment, EMU, and having a positive impact on students. Wesley is dedicated to creating an open and inclusive space for all of the individuals on the EMU campus. He hopes to use his previous experience with recreation and sustainability to enhance the experience within the recreational facility and around campus.
