What I look for in a student: I look for a student who is motivated and willing to accept the challenges college life will undoubtedly present. Coe offers a wealth of opportunities for its students academically, socially and professionally, and I like to see students who show a genuine excitement and interest in getting the most out of their college years.

What I love about my job: Finding the right college can be a scary task for students and their families. I love that my job affords me an opportunity to assist them in this critical process on a daily basis. Coe College is also a place that I am very passionate about, and I look forward to sharing my experiences, as well as what our school has to offer prospective students.

My hobbies: I love playing and watching baseball more than anything, but I enjoy all sports. I also love reading, fishing, cycling and just being outdoors in general.

Favorite Music: I listen to all kinds of music, but I prefer Country.

Favorite Coe Memory: Hands down, diving into the dog-pile on the mound at Kernels Stadium after winning the conference baseball title. Best feeling a student-athlete could ever have!

Favorite Coe Tradition: The Victory Bell and the Dougie Peters send-off!

Favorite place on Coe's campus: Eby Fieldhouse

Favorite Professional Sports Team: I love Major League Baseball. The Yankees are my team… Being a Cubs fan is just too hard on the heart.

Favorite Quote: "The best thing about the future is that is comes one day at a time." - Abraham Lincoln

What is your dream job? I would love to work in Cooperstown, New York and the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Fun Fact: I hate ketchup and most other condiments.
