“Success is when preparedness meets opportunity”- Unknown
“I truly feel that my journey and experiences in college prepared me for the field of higher education. It wasn’t long ago that I sat in a classroom wondering when or if I will ever accomplish my dream of earning a college degree. Those were very challenging times for me. I worked a part-time job to help support my mom while taking evening courses. There were many discouraging voices along the path but I was determined to cross the finish line. With great determination and the help and support of my family, colleagues, advisors and professors I crossed the finished line. It is not enough to get students enrolled in college, it is our job as college educators and administrators to guide and equip them for the journey.
I look forward to getting to know all my students and embarking along with them on their college journey at Roger Williams University School of Continuing Studies.”
