Favorite Spot on Campus
The Otterbein Bookstore! I love representing the university and showing my Cardinal pride. The bookstore has great clothing and supplies to choose from. Plus they carry great snacks and beverages when I need a break from my office

Why I love my job
Since I attended a small private university, the fact that I get to tell high school students how much I gained from a small campus environment is awesome. What’s even better is where Otterbein is located – you really can’t beat a small campus environment in such a fabulous location! That combined with my passion for educating students and families on access to higher education really drives me in what I do,

Advice for the college search
Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks about the colleges you are looking at. You will know once you set foot on campus if you can see yourself spending the next four years at any particular place. Let your instincts be your guide and be confident in your decision.

What makes Otterbein great
The passion that faculty, staff, and students have at Otterbein. Whether it’s an athletic coach, a theater director, or an engineering student, everyone is so involved in their craft and is very passionate in what they contribute to the campus community.
