"I like working with students ... I feel like I am making a difference ."

What do you like best about your position?

I like working with the academic enrichment programs that have a positive impact on young people.

I feel like I am making a difference and enjoy watching them succeed. There are a lot of good young

people coming up behind us as our future leaders.

What time do you arrive at work? What time do you leave work?

I arrive at 8:00 a.m. and leave at 4:30 p.m. Occasionally, I will work weekend or evening events.

Why did you choose Lehigh University as your employer of choice?

Lehigh not only offers a high quality education and a lot of opportunities for its students, but it also

offers a lot of great opportunities for its employees. The sky is the limit at Lehigh University.

What Lehigh University events and activities have you participated in beyond your

department to become a more active member of the Lehigh community?

I have gotten involved in the Lehigh Colleges Against Cancer campaign. The students are amazing

and have creative/inventive ideas. My family and I have attended sport and Zoellner events over the

years. Also, my children attended summer camps, both academic and sports.

What is your favorite location on campus and why?

I like the Asa Packer Campus in general. I enjoy the history and architecture. There is a lot of

excitement and energy in the air when classes are in session.

What do you like best about working for an academic institution?

I like working with the students and in a collegic environment;  I feel like I am part of something

bigger than myself.
