Job title: Field experience counselor, College of Nursing and Health Care Professions

Job location: Peoria

What attracted you to GCU? The commitment GCU has to its surrounding community and student body. I am a returning employee, and it is so refreshing to see that everything President Brian Mueller talked about more than a year ago is actually happening.

What do you do for fun and where do you find that outlet? Camping and hiking in Arizona, California, and Oregon. I am also an artist, so I love to paint and do printmaking.

What are you passionate about? Living life with no regrets and having fun.

What are your favorite places or events in the Valley that you like to visit? South Mountain hiking trails, Tempe Arts Festival and any type of cultural festival.

Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know: I met MC Hammer when I was 9! He was practicing with his dancers at my uncle’s apartment in Sacramento. This was before he was super famous. I saw him later in Las Vegas at a club my friends and I were at in the MGM after the Billboard Awards. How often do you get to meet people before and after they are famous?

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of my 4-month-old son, Samuel Wayne Austin Gillette (SWAG). The initials were not on purpose. He is named after his great grandpa and grandpas.
