Years working at Bluffton University:

Since September 2008


Why I chose Bluffton University:
I like the idea of being part of a community that not only accepts people from an array of different backgrounds, but appreciates the unique perspectives they bring to the table. I love the opportunity for hands-on learning, volunteering and traveling as a part of my education.


Ultimately, I chose to attend Bluffton, and continue to work here, because students, faculty and staff actually live out the university's mission statement; "Bluffton University seeks to prepare students for all backgrounds for life as well as vocation, for responsible citizenship, for service to all peoples and ultimately for the purposes of God's universal kingdom."
