My passion for education began at an early age and has continued into a path of lifelong learning. I earned my Bachelor’s of Art in Early Childhood Education from Heidelberg University. I taught for a couple of years and decided to further my education. Through dedication, time management and commitment, I earned my Master’s of Education in Educational Leadership through an online platform at Grand Canyon University. Pursuing further education online allowed for the balancing of work, education, and children. I initially became interested in higher education while working with students who were transitioning from school to adulthood. My interest in working in higher education intensified when my oldest son, Brendon, began pursuing his college programs and goals.
As an advisor, I am one of the first people for my students to contact with all their needs to pursue their dreams and goals. I will guide students through their higher education experience here at Tiffin University. Life and challenges will happen but staying a motivated student is an important characteristic to utilize while completing an online degree. It is important that they have a supportive resource that will guide and encourage them to do their best! I believe that I must be one of their biggest supporters!
Outside of work, I enjoy watching sports and road tripping through Ohio. I love the scenic shores of Lake Erie and the relaxation that waves hitting the shore brings. I enjoy professional sports but you can generally find me cheering on my youngest son, Braylon, at his football, basketball or baseball games. My family has a true love for baseball in which we spend many weekends during the summer traveling to baseball tournaments. I have truly enjoyed being both of my son’s biggest fan!
