I am a proud Ohio University alum and have worked at Ohio University since 2006 (not including my time as a student employee). In my time away from Ohio University, fall is busy with coaching soccer, but I also enjoy yoga, hiking, watching movies, live music, and road trips with my partner and two teenage daughters (one of whom is a student at Ohio University).
In my role as the Associate Director for Experiential Access and Engagement I am a champion for student access to experiential learning opportunities. A guiding principle in my personal and professional life is that every person has value, and every person deserves respect. I apply this belief in my work as a student advocate. I believe quality experiential learning opportunities are an integral part of the college experience, are essential to true self-actualization, and should be accessible to ALL students. My goal, in collaboration with a wonderful community of faculty, staff and students, is to help make this a reality at Ohio University.
I never have one favorite anything…so here are two of my favorite quotes:
- “If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” —Maya Angelou
- “Not all who wander are lost.” —J.R.R. Tolkien"
