I used to tell people my claims to fame were playing on two National Championship football teams at the University of Oklahoma and serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in South America. But now my claim to fame, together with my wife, is having raised five good children; four of whom have graduated from Southern Virginia. I grew up playing in rock bands, playing sports, and spending time with my family. My favorite band right now is Imagine Dragons.
I am a California girl that has always loved the beauty of the East Coast. I love to travel and have been to 15 different countries. I am one of six girls and I always find myself on crazy adventures with my sisters. I love to explore and try new things. I love animals, especially my dachshund, Arthur. I recently graduated from Southern Virginia University where I majored in history with a minor in politics. I love this school, I love its values, and I love how it has helped me grow. I cannot wait to share that love with you!
I am a Southern Virginia University graduate with liberal arts degree focused in history. I was born and raised in Southern California and I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Kyiv, Ukraine. My wife and I live in Buena Vista and enjoy taking our one-year old son on hikes through the Blue Ridge Mountains. We love the history and beauty of the East Coast. I played volleyball and football in high school and I love Southern Virginia Knights Athletics. This University has a special place in my heart and I feel blessed to be a part it.
I am a Vegas native that moved to the lush and beautiful East Coast! Before trekking across the United States, I was a music teacher and enjoyed the challenge that the classroom offered. I have a love for tiny homes, indoor plants, card games, and cooking. I ended up at Southern Virginia University by chance and have enjoyed every minute. This school offers a personalized education that really caters to you and your career goals. I would love to share more of what made me love Southern Virginia University.
Born and raised in Colorado, I developed a love for athletics, adventure, and the outdoors. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Russian and subsequently received a master’s degree in Education from the University of Pennsylvania. My post-graduate work has placed me in educational institutions in a wide array of roles, cultures, and age groups, and has given me invaluable exposure to what does and does not work in education. I love Southern Virginia University’s individualized approach to higher education and I can’t wait to tell you more about how this university can help you develop personally and professionally as well as acquire gainful employment after graduation. Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
I am originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, but I have lived in Buena Vista and been involved with Southern Virginia for about a decade. I have really come to love the university and all that I have been able to do here. I am a business management and leadership major, but I have participated in theater, a cappella, choir, student executive council, comedy improv, and soccer. While I enjoy just about any physical activity, I also love to read and write. I learned to tolerate the cold from serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to northern Alberta. I love Southern Virginia and feel lucky to be a part of it.
I have an awesome job. After I graduated from Southern Virginia University in 2010, I studied architecture at one of the top design schools in the country. Now, I’m back at my alma mater where I work as the University’s creative director and I teach 2D and 3D Design. But the best part is, I get to help talented artists and designers find their voice at Southern Virginia, just like I did.
