WORKED AT KENT STATE SINCE:
EMPLOYMENT PRIOR TO KENT STATE UNIVERSITY:
I worked in the St. Louis Community College system in Missouri before moving to Ohio.
LIKES MOST ABOUT KENT STATE:
The community of Kent State University is warm, supportive, and inclusive and the Kent campus has gorgeous green spaces that are a joy to walk in the warm weather.
FAVORITE MEMORY WHILE AT KENT STATE UNIVERSITY:
I formed an amazing friendship with a grad student from Ghana who needed help due to a family crisis right after he arrived. Helping and mentoring him was one of the most rewarding experiences of my time at KSU. My happiest memory was sitting with his mother for his commencement. We are all still friends today.
ATTRACTION TO KENT STATE AS AN EMPLOYER:
The professional development opportunities and benefits are exceptional. The tuition benefit allowed me to finish my degree.
