No institution means more to me than West Virginia University! You can say I have been a Mountaineer my whole life. Growing up cheering for the Mountaineers as a child to my days as a undergraduate student at WVU to returning to the place I have spent most of my professional career, I believe in WVU and how it can positively impact one's life.

The Student Life team and I are thrilled to be a part of your child's journey at WVU. We exist to provide an extraordinary and transformative experience for your student every day that they are at WVU.

We deliver on this by offering a unique range of experiences and moments for all WVU students. From cultural to recreational engagement, from fun to thought-provoking lectures and events, to various leadership building and service learning opportunities, we play a significant part of what it means to be a Mountaineer. We are an excellent complement to our academic partners. We help put the sheen on your student's skills, abilities, and dreams.

West Virginia and its flagship University pride itself on being accessible and approachable. I hold myself to the same standard as Dean of Students. Please call or email me at any time with your questions, comments, or concerns. 

Let's Go Mountaineers!
