November 06, 2017 / by / 0 Comment

This week's edition of Antelope Intros features a new engineering project coordinator who is most passionate about time spent with family.

Antelope Intros is a recurring GCU Today feature that introduces some of our new employees to the people around them in a way that is fun and informative. Employees are eligible to be featured in the month following their orientation.

Job title: Engineering project coordinator

Job location: Main campus

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.
