What I enjoy most about working with students:

The two-way street that we all travel.  Seeing eyes light up with understanding is matched by the new insights that I get from working with younger people 

My hometown:

Cedar Falls, IA

First job out of college:

Working in restaurants and summer theatres all through college but I guess the first thing out of college was when I was drafted into the US Army 

Lowest grade I got as an undergrad:

Two “F’s” and the request of the University that I take some time off. Turned out to be a good year 

If I didn’t work for Advising I would:

Still be doing theatre 

Bucket list item:

None, really. Stay healthy so I can continue doing what I do
