Favorite thing about WJU : It is a beautiful place filled with caring and compassionate people who are dedicated to the students.
Favorite thing about your job : I love witnessing the sense of accomplishment on the faces of our adult students when they finally earn the degrees that they have worked so long to achieve. It is amazing knowing that I have been an instrumental part in guiding them to this point!
Advice for Adult Students : Making that initial call can be the most difficult part about returning to school as an adult, but don't be afraid to give our office a call - we are here to service you and we'll be here to guide you from inquiry to graduation!
When I'm Not Working I'm Most likely : Having fun with my beautiful daughter!
