Why I love working here:
Being a Career Director for BYU facilitates an environment where I can combine faith-based principles with current and effective job search strategies with students, inspiring peace, confidence, and direction in a student’s life.

Quote I live by:
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” —Mark Twain

Advice for Students:
Every experience counts - consider them as opportunities for becoming the best version of yourself. Practice courage - don’t let opportunities pass you by out of fear for the unknown. Get involved, work/volunteer, do what you love - then figure out a way for someone to pay you for it! Associate with people who inspire you. Take time to thank those who helped you accomplish your goals and look for opportunities to do the same for others.

Favorite BYU Ice Cream Flavor:
Fluffer Nutter and Rose’s Sneakerdoodle!!

What I love doing when I’m not at work:
In my spare time, I love spending time with my wife and six kids doing activities such as performing, hiking, exercising, playing racquet sports, constructing or building things, and traveling. My favorite way to unwind listening to audio books while working in the yard.
