What do you find most enjoyable about working at Anderson University?

The ability to blend spiritual beliefs and practices with teaching in the classroom.

What I wish prospectives students knew about my discipline or careers in my discipline.

The possibilities are endless in healthcare management. This degree can provide you with opportunities to work within hospitals, physician practices, long-term care facilities, non-profit organizations, department of health and environmental control, department of health and human services, insurance companies, consulting firms, and even more!

How would you describe your classes to someone who has never attended one?

My classes prepare students to be knowledgeable of all aspects of healthcare management. My classroom environment is encouraging and pushes students to achieve their best.
