My role at Gateway: I am the Director of the Assessment Center. How long I’ve worked here: I am currently in my 13th year at Gateway. My hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio. Why I do what I do: I am energized by the students and community members who test with us. They are motivated and goal-oriented. I also am teaching a college reading course, and I truly enjoy the student interaction. My philosophy: Gateway provides the residents of Northern Kentucky the opportunity to meet their educational and professional goals. I am privileged to be able to assist them in reaching their goals. I believe that we all are life-long learners. I like our students because: Gateway students teach me that you are never too old, too young or too busy to learn something new! A little more about me: My favorite book is “The Bronze Bow,” (by Elizabeth George Speare). My favorite movie is “Titanic.” Nothing beats a little history mixed with romance and a good story.
