I am a graduate associate working toward my PhD in Community and Extension Education. My research interests include leadership development, new personnel socialization, training and development practices, organizational leadership, and organizational strategy and development.
So far my graduate experiences have been life altering. I am discovering my purpose as well as learning how to help others do the same. I enjoy serving others and relish in the idea that I have the opportunity to add value to their lives however insignificant it may be.
I grew up on a farm in rural Ohio where I learned the value of hard work and perseverance. My family particularly my grandmother, has had an immense influence on my life and made me who I am today. She taught me to live through my faith, respect others, and do my best to enjoy life without regret.
I am pleased that you are visiting my site.
