I have the privilege of coming to work every day and touching the lives of others! Working with young people and fellow academic advisers is a dream career and I try to never take it for granted.

I have three dogs: Dixie, Rosie and Doozer and they are the joy of my life.

The most unusual thing in my office is a wall hanging my mom made that incorporates the handkerchiefs she carried to school every day when she was a little girl.

My childhood nickname was "Top Cat." My initials are T.C., so my primary school friends called me Top Cat, who was a popular cartoon character at that time.

My favorite job growing up was teaching horseback riding lessons and training horses.

You may not know this about me but I sing tenor in my church choir.

If I could have only one book to read, it would be the Bible.

If I could listen to one band the rest of my life it would be the Eagles.

In my spare time I... What spare time?

My favorite things to eat are chocolate chip cookies. Yum!

To satisfy my sweet tooth, I enjoy... Chocolate - anything chocolate.
