Why did you choose CSU Stanislaus?
My GI Bill runs out in 2016 and I wanted to get one more degree while I still could.

What advice would you give Prospective Students?
Contact myself or Nadine Kent as soon as you think you might want to come here, we can help with literally EVERYTHING else! Stop by the Student Veteran Center in the Student Services Building anytime from 9am-5pm to meet other Veterans and get plugged into what’s going on with study groups, events, the club, or your benefits.

What has been your favorite academic or student life experience so far?
Lunchtime is the best time to be on campus, whether hanging out in the quad or seeing students at the Student Veteran Center.

What is your career objective?
I still don’t know!

Do you plan to attend Graduate School?
(Again) Yes, I’ll probably get a PhD after my kids are grown

What clubs, sports, and activities have you participated in?
I’m the Advisor to the Student Veteran Organization and I play rugby for the Modesto Rugby Club.

Who are your most influential personal and/or University mentor?
I feel I learned the most in the shortest time from Lee Renner.
