What’s your favorite spot on campus? 

I love the aerial view from the 3rd floor balcony in Stover [Campus Center] and the way you can overlook the entire campus.

What’s your favorite annual WU event?

Homecoming! Everybody comes back and I get to see people I haven’t seen in a long time – it’s such a fun day!

What’s your most memorable WU moment?

When I was asked to play the piano at the Robert’s Chapel Dedication – it was such an honor!

What makes WU a special place to work?

All the different mixes of people and different cultures coming together at the University in such a small town is so interesting to me. 

What do you consider the most special or unique part of your job? 

I really enjoy researching old alumni information and the history of the University. I remember when they found the time capsule when Stewart Science Hall was being renovated – I could really relate to some of the things they found because I knew the history behind them.
