"I love the challenges that working in Residence Life afford me as I never know what is going to happen next. College is a time when students are faced with difficult decisions everyday and I feel privileged to be able to help shape the community where many of those decisions are made."

"Tech is a tough school. If my team and I do things right, our residents can focus on their academics and not have to worry about the little things. Being comfortable where you live, I believe, is critical to academic success. After all, our residents only get one undergraduate career, so making it fun and successful is important!"

"As an educator, I believe that I am responsible for motivating students to reach their full potential and empowering them to take control of their success versus leaving it up to chance. My hope is that I can make an impact on every student that I come in contact with by helping them to see that they are important and they have the potential to be great. At the end of the day, I think that every student should feel as if someone appreciates them, believes in them and thinks that they are great....my goal is to be that person for students."
