I began my career at NACC the latter part of 1988 teaching psychology and serving in the Admissions Office. After 14 years I became the Director of Admissions and Student Services and then became Vice President in 2007. I remember the struggles I had as a student at Northeast many years ago. Study skills, test-taking skills, choice of careers and other issues that challenged my academic success that I had then helps me identify with students who may have similar issues now. It is great know that Northeast now has so many great resources to help students succeed. As a student at NACC many years ago I never dreamed that I would be back at my alma mater serving in this role!
When I am not at NACC I enjoy spending time with my wife of over 40 years, getting on my tractor and cutting grass or working the garden, and just piddling around the farm. I also enjoy reading, taking day trips to see the countryside and doing church work.
There is not another career that I could have enjoyed more than serving at NACC. I love helping students and working with our great faculty!
