What’s one piece of advice you wish you had when you were an undergraduate student?

Your education is not about what you remember, it is about who you become along the way.

Favorite quote?

“There is no comfort in the growth zone, and no growth in the comfort zone.” – Jocko Willink

Define fun and what does that look like to you?

Fun is anything that brings a smile to my face, joy to my heart, and laughter to my soul. I love a good adventure, hiking, repelling, or kayaking. I enjoy playing pickle-ball and a good workout at the gym, but nothing beats spending time with my four grandsons.
