ROSS KIRBY

Job title:  Academic Counselor

Job location: Tempe

What attracted you to GCU? My auntie used to work for GCU years ago and told me about how it was a Christian university; that is what first attracted me.  What also attracted me to GCU was the values and beliefs that the University upholds. I was raised in the church, so it was good to have an employer that has the same beliefs. ‘Lopes Up!

What do you do for fun and where do you find that outlet? I like to exercise, go to sporting events and travel (mainly fly, I don’t like long car rides).

What are you passionate about? My passions are cooking and sports.

What are your favorite places or events in the Valley that you like to visit?  I like to visit the art galleries and museums around the Valley. I also enjoy the different food and culture festivals that the Valley has to offer. Can’t forget going to D-Backs and Suns games!

Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know:  I was born with 12 fingers. No, I only have 10 now, haha.

What are you most proud of?  I am most proud to have graduated college and bought my first home.

What do you do for fun and where do you find that outlet? Hang out with my wife and baby (Marlen and Mason Smith). We go to Westgate  for family fun nights on Saturdays.

What are you passionate about? God, family and friends. Without those three, life would be empty!

What are your favorite places or events in the Valley that you like to visit?  NASCAR (PIR), Arizona Cardinals (UOP Stadium) or Oregano’s for just good old local food.
