Time at Southeast: 6 years

What brought you to Southeast? I wanted to give back to the school that got me started in my career and breathe life in to a program that was struggling.

What is the most important part of your job to you? Ensuring that the needs of each student who reaches out to me are met. I am here to help them get a quality education.

Why do you enjoy working with students? I love working with the students because I get to see them grow and obtain the goals that they set for themselves.

Tell us something fun about yourself that someone might not normally know. I am really in to smoking meat with different kinds of wood. It s always interesting to see the outcome!

Why do you stay at Southeast? I stay at Southeast because these are my people. They walk in the shoes that I have walked in. I want provide the students the opportunity that was provided to me when I started here. I want them to see that each of them are a great and unique person and that each has their own skill set that will make someone else better when the goals they set for themselves are met.
