"I am a first-generation college graduate who knows that a college degree can change your life. I am passionate about helping students to succeed in reaching their personal and professional goals. The small class sizes at Coker help me to know my students and to form strong working alliances with them as they map their paths to success."
"When I visited Coker in 2014, I instantly fell in love with the community. Specifically, I appreciated the college's emphasis on relationships between students, faculty, and staff. The intimate nature of the Coker community creates a climate that encourages mentorship between faculty and students. This ability to directly impact a student's future is both what sold me on Coker and what keeps me coming back. At Coker, I have the ability to make a difference."
"With the new millenium, I came to Coker sensing that I had the opportunity to help build something special: a college where we could watch 'the lights come on' in a student's mind. I have not been disappointed. This is especially true of my experiences in overseas study. Many of my study abroad alumni are still traveling and seeing more than ever the importance of travel as a crucial component of the liberal arts and essential in the preparation of the student for citizenship."
