Why do you like EKU?

I love EKU because when I came here for my undergraduate degree I felt like I never left home because the students and faculty here at Eastern are really nice people.

Why do you like working in EKU Housing?

Because every day I get to work with great people who really believe in the students of EKU. I also love that I get to help students out on daily basis with whatever need to exceed for that day.

What do you want students to know about you?

I’m a caring person that is here when they need me. I will always work hard to make sure the residents in the halls are having a great time that they will remember forever.

Give a piece of best advice for students.

Get connected and use good time management skills.
