I have been a part of the Defiance College staff since 1985 and the best part about working in admissions is getting to know the students and watching them grow as individuals. I supervise the student workers in the admissions office. Throughout their four years of working in the office, my goal is to help them be well-rounded students that exceed in the work place after graduation. At DC, I believe there is a genuine interest in seeing our students succeed. We provide them with top-notch facilities that are inviting and very attractive. The relationship between faculty/staff and students has always been a positive feature of DC.

Have a great day and I hope to see you on campus soon.
