Favorite spot on campus

I really love the historically preserved Philamethean Room in Towers Hall. I love history and enjoy having opportunities to see places that are unchanged and preserved, as they were over one hundred years ago.

Why I love my job

I love getting an opportunity to talk with future students about what higher education has to offer. These four years can be some of the best and most impactful times in your life. I really consider it an honor to help and be a part of that decision.

Advice for the college search

Everyone is different and that is OK! Look for the school that is going to be the best fit for you. Think about what college can do, to push you to grow in order to be the best version of you! These four years are great years, but they are just the start of everything that comes after.

What makes Otterbein great

The people! I love working with my coworkers but when I hear students, professors and other staff talk about being a part of Otterbein, you can tell they genuinely want to be here and they are passionate about this University. That enthusiasm is infectious and I really think that is something special.
