Why teach at AU?

I am not only passionate about instructing students but also serving as a positive influence during their faith journey.

Therefore, I strive to let Christ's light shine through everything I do as I assist students in becoming the best versions of themselves as they go into their future professions.

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

Everyone is extremely friendly and goes out of their way to make you feel welcome.

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

Exercise and nutrition is extremely complicated. Sometimes there is not one cut-and-dried answer to a given situation.

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

Critical thinking and practical application based. To be successful, students must be able to think and apply concepts to many different real life situations.
