Favorite quote: “Attitude is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, money, circumstances, than failures and success, than what other people think, say, or do. It is more important than appearance, ability, or skill. It will make or break a business, a home, a friendship, an organization. The remarkable thing is I have a choice every day of what my attitude will be. I cannot change my past. I cannot change the actions of others. I cannot change the inevitable. The only thing I can change is attitude. Life is ten percent what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it.”
― Charles R. Swindoll

What I like about BSU: I love BSU because it is “home” for me. It holds a special place in my heart both because I went here for undergrad, and because it is where my love and passion for working in higher education began.

My hobbies include: spending time with my three children and husband, traveling, baking and cooking, and just being outside!
