Beauty in nature, sweet breath of newborn babies, working in an environment with amazingly creative individuals

The best thing about my job is:

hearing from satisfied customers how an article or journal has reached someone in a remote or hostile country or helped them personally further their education.

On the beach in Hawaii – any island

Sally Fields or Lucille Ball – seem a lot like me

Personal Quote:

Customer is always right, send out another copy

Top Three Favorite Projects I’ve worked on at Biola:

  1. Getting journals out (Spring/Fall for CEJ/SFJ and Spring/Summer/Fall & Winter for JPT
  2. Commencement – small part but always a joy to see students successfully graduate
  3. Inauguration of Dr. Corey – an honor to work with the symbolic emblems
