I decided to go to PCC my senior year of high school. I really never even thought about college before then. I had heard about PCC many times since my sister graduated from PCC and my brother attended for one year. I told myself early on that I was not going to stay for all four years, but God had other plans. I also told myself that I would not get my master’s from PCC, but once again God had other plans for me. Seven years later, I have both an undergraduate degree (Pre-physical Therapy) and a master’s (Business Administration) from PCC.

While my plans were different than God’s, I would not change any aspect of how my life turned out. I met my wife through PCC and many of my closest friends. I am happy for the opportunity to be an enrollment adviser to help prospective students to find the plan that God has for their lives. I look forward to helping each student brought my way to apply to PCC.

  • Favorite food My Dad's homemade venison jerky.
  • Favorite place on campus The tables near the Campanile (the bell tower). It's shaded but still outside, and quiet but still close enough to say hi to friends passing by.

  • Advice for future studentsCome to PCC with a major, even if you are not sure you will keep it. Being Undeclared is fine, but you can still take different classes from other majors if you have a major and are uncertain. Declaring a major will get you on course faster. It's easier to switch majors than to still be stuck at the end of the year not knowing what you want to do.
  • Best PCC memoryOne year, there was a Tropical Storm during Fine Arts. Because the campus was going to shut down, Fine Arts became casual, and had a matinee (afternoon) performance. My friend group and I had so much fun getting together to hear professional acapella groups and barbershop quartets perform. It was an impeccable performance, and I had an incredible time. Although it was a windy, it didn't rain that much before we went back into the dorms. It was one of my favorite Fine Arts of all of my years at PCC!
  • I spend my free timeexploring for unique boutiques and coffee shops.
  • Ideal/favorite vacation spotI would love to go to Italy some day!
