What is your favorite aspect of your job ?
I love UNT because people care about me personally and professionally. Everybody at UNT has always been more than welcoming and they go out of their way to always help each other. We work in an awesome collaborative environment, and there is a genuine spirit of cooperation. Professionally, I love that UNT has always empowered me to do my job. I can confidently say that I have made long-lasting friendships here at UNT.
What employee benefit or activity would you like to see added to UNT World? 
I would love for UNT to provide free access to the UNT Rec Center for all employees and their families.
What is your proudest work moment? 
There are many. If I must pick one, it is to work alongside a great group of professionals who care about their jobs and always do their best. I am proud to be part of such a great group of people that really go above and beyond, and really care about their work.
What is your proudest non-work moment? 
Seeing my family adjust and grow here in North Texas. There have been challenges along the way, but we always come together as a family and push through no matter the challenge.

What fact about you might surprise your colleagues? 
I do not think this is a surprise to anybody, but I am a big Star Wars fan. I even have a very cool lightsaber right next to my desk.
