Meet Colleen

My role at Gateway: Director of Disability Services

How long I’ve worked here: Almost 18 years

Where I’m from: Florida

My philosophy and why I do what I do: Everyone deserves an opportunity—or two, or three… I want everyone to have the opportunity to achieve their dream or dreams. If someone wants something, and has the talent and drive to make it happen, I want the opportunity to be available. We all need help to achieve our dreams; I am glad to be a part of an institution that provides opportunities and the support to utilize those opportunities

I like our students because: I like our students because they are; no better reason of which I know.

A little more about me: My favorite hobby is reading, and my favorite book is The Razor’s Edge by W. Somerset Maugham. I don’t have cable or satellite TV, so I sometimes am out of touch with some of the popular shows. However, I watch almost all of the crime scene investigation-type shows. I am an avid sports fan, and I especially like college football.
