What do you like most about the current career path you have chosen?
What I like about my career path is the competition year in and year out. And gaining new clients.

Why did you choose Tiffin University?
At first, I chose to go to Tiffin University because of cross country and to help start a brand-new program. But during my recruiting process, I picked TU because of the family atmosphere it showed me. Coach Cavangh took me in and showed me what being a TU Dragon was all about. I cannot thank her enough.

Do you have a favorite TU memory?
I have so many memories at Tiffin University. To say I have just one is tough. The best memories are the road trips with my teammates, of course. But one does stick out the most. Our very first meet freshman year we were jogging the course when Coach Cavangh yelled “Guys, they are ready to start the race!” Someone got the start times mixed up. So we ended up starting a race without warming up. The second one would be beating the baseball coaches in morning basketball. Lonny Allen and his staff would always try to compete with the young runners and lose gracefully.

What does being a TU graduate mean to you?
TU means the world to me. The University still treats me like family. When taking my family or anyone to campus I get this feeling in my gut. It is a feeling of joy as soon as I get close to the campus. I love how they embrace me as I set foot on campus and the love they show my family, especially my son. He is a freshman in high school, but since he was a little boy he has told everyone he is going to Tiffin University.

What life or career advice would you give to current students?
Advice would be. Come home and celebrate your experience at Tiffin University. Give back either financially or visit events throughout the year.
