What do you enjoy most about working with NAU undergrads?
The students' energy and enthusiasm; they are great fun to be with.

What is your favorite place on campus?
NAU has a beautiful campus, I love the trees and bike/walk ways.  My two favorite places are the Peace Fountain and both Starbucks.
Why should students take advantage of the Student Success Coaching program?
Because our students are smart enough to know that life's challenges (including University life) are easier when not faced alone.

What is your greatest strength and how has it helped you in your career?
Two things:
1. Setting aside time to exercise on a regular basis;
2. Keeping a positive attitude, knowing that the difficult times will pass and the good times create great memories.
