What attracted you to GCU? My husband and I did a new student tour last year with our daughter. This is not the GCU I remembered, so I started looking into job opportunities here.
What do you do for fun and where do you find that outlet? I am a fitness enthusiast, so I enjoy the great outdoors and being with people who like to push themselves.
What are you passionate about? Enjoying the time with my family! My youngest says that I am annoying, but I think I am fun and funny.
What are your favorite places or events in the Valley that you like to visit? Anything that is outside or free. Costco samples are my favorite, and I also like hiking, cycling, Luke Days and parades. We have had three marching band students and don’t miss one parade.
Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know: I do not like to cook. I would prefer to clean than make a dinner. Actually, preparing dinner for another person will send me into a panic attack.
What are you most proud of? My three kids (20, 18 and 16)! The two oldest are GCU students. They make me proud to be their mom.
