I have always found value in a coaching style of leadership and guidance, and strongly believe that treating mistakes as a learning opportunity allows people to adjust course and grow. In both my personal and professional lives, I am continuously driven by helping others work through a problem and find a solution. I currently serve as the Advising and Recruiting Coordinator for the Honors College, and am passionate about helping students achieve their goals. Prior to working in higher education, I spent 17 years in the hospitality industry. Outside of work, I play guitar in a rock band and am a combat veteran of the United States Marine Corps. My life experiences have taught me that people all over the world have a few basic needs, and just listening is often the first step to addressing those needs. Everyone should have the opportunity to feel heard, understood, and valued.
