"My professional development within nonprofits, education, and teaching has been inspired most by three individuals that ironically had connections to all three anchors as well as Grand Valley State University. My educational undergraduate experience taught me the lesson in perseverance which led to my graduate school experience embracing the best practices in leading a passion driven life. My strongest beliefs include active participation and personal integration among life, work, and family. In the words of coming “full circle”, my passion lies within engaging students to the mission of participating on campus, within the community, and always working to succeed personally as well as professionally. My focus for the upcoming years will include grounding my passions while enhancing my academic role in the collegiate higher education atmosphere.”
