Staff Council Vice-Chair
|I’ve been the Title III Learning Services Specialist since I joined NWACC IN November 2009. Since coming on board I’ve been involved in a great variety of projects and have found our faculty and staff to be highly dedicated to moving in a direction that puts the student first. I view my position with Staff Council as an opportunity to continue to open avenues of communication to work together to continue to promote student success, but also have a have a great time with my fellow employees. When I’m not on campus I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife Tabatha, whether it’s in a canoe with a couple of fishing lines in the water or working on a landscaping project at our home.|

My pursuit to achieving happiness in life derives from the desire to present the following values on an everyday basis; a profound commitment to rearing my three beautiful children; an enthusiastic dedication for my studies as a student; and being career driven when it comes to my position within Higher Education. As an Administrative Specialist for the Student Records office, I support the Registrar by systematizing the immense volume of records required of accepted students in order to meet state law and college policy standards, facilitate the instruction and training of other staff members within the department, and above all administer the importance of customer service.
