Serving students in the following areas: I work with transfer students from all over the United States.

My hometown: Bay Village, Ohio

What makes Baldwin Wallace University distinctive? Our ability to connect with students. We have a campus climate that genuinely cares for each student’s well-being.

What is the most interesting place I have visited?  Vitoria, Brazil

Where would I still like to visit that I haven't already? Bali or Belize

What is my favorite movie? “An Affair to Remember”

What am I currently reading in my spare time?  “The Lake House” by Kate Morton

If I could meet any historical figure, who would I choose and why? Teddy Roosevelt. He forged his own path and didn’t back down.

What song can’t I get out of my head right now?  “Ride” by Twenty-One Pilots

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland?  Both Berea and Cleveland have an amazing Metropark system. I love to hike and can easily go for a beautiful walk on my lunch hour.

My message for students thinking about the value of college and BW: I am lucky to work with transfer students who come from both community colleges and other four-year institutions. BW is transfer-friendly and has great scholarships for full-time students.
