Job title: Director, Campus Recreation
What is your favorite band/music?: Coltrane is my permanent go-to, but right now I’m groovin’ on a compilation chill mix.
What is your favorite part of your job?: The opportunity to help others succeed, whether that’s a student striving for an active lifestyle or a professional staff member looking to enhance their skill set.
What was your experience in your field before this position?: I served as Assistant Director, Fitness & Wellness at 4 different universities. I’ve also been Fitness Center Manager for IBM-Boulder, served in marketing positions, done personal fitness training, taught group exercise at commercial fitness centers, and bartended my way through school (wait, is that going too far back?!).
What advice would you have for students who have future aspirations of attaining your job title?: Take advantage of volunteer/job opportunities to find what excites you most (Campus Recreation has over 15 different positions in the department, many providing great leadership opportunities). Get out there and find what rocks your world!
If you could invite any 2 living people in the world to dinner, who would they be and why?: Michelle Obama so we could discuss her Let’s Move! program designed to eliminate childhood obesity within a generation. Just Mrs. Obama, that’s enough conversation for an entire evening!
