What’s so amazing about DSU? The people. The programs. The experience. That might sound a little cliché, but DSU offers much of what I wanted as an undergraduate and graduate student. Personal attention, friendliness, educational investment from faculty and staff – all on a technology driven campus.

Favorite DSU experience? Talking with prospective students and counselors about what we have to offer. Even if DSU isn’t the right fit for you, I love to encourage each student to focus on academics, their potential career path, and where they’ll feel most comfortable. My tours and talks tend to go a little long because an education at DSU goes beyond admissions. I try to build a relationship with each incoming student.

Five Interesting Things About Me:

  • I was born on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, CA
  • I attempt to play golf, jog, and play table tennis.  
  • I enjoy camping and hiking.
