Favorite thing about Baylor: The enthusiasm of everyone I meet! Every person on campus is genuinely happy to be at work.
Favorite place in Waco: All the coffee and tea shops! I’m not sure I will ever be able to visit all of them, but I’m trying.
What inspires me: The families who have made the big decision to send a child to Baylor for the best possible education and experience. I love getting to help them make that dream come true.
Favorite hobbies: Performing Japanese tea ceremonies for friends, reading anything, live music, and flower arranging.
Fun facts about me: I lived in Japan for 5 years after completing graduate school. I have worked in International Education for 33 years, and I earned my doctoral degree as an old lady in my 40’s.
My advice to you: View your life as a “Choose your own Adventure” book! You never know what wonderful opportunities are just around the corner, so be on the lookout for them.
