As an early ’90s Pitt Greensburg student, I was focused on figuring out what to do with my life.  Now as president and third-year board member of our multi-disciplined PGAA team, I am focused on sharing our career and life experiences to provide insight, tools and perspectives to help both alumni and students achieve success. I am very excited and honored to be part of this team of fantastic and passionate Pitt-Greensburg alumni, who want to provide valuable experiences and information to both current students and alumni, and I look f​​orward to engaging with both to help where we can.

I chose to join the PGAA because Pitt-Greensburg was my home away from home. I was looking for a way to stay connected to the campus since I loved it so much. I found that the PGAA was a great opportunity for me to do that.  I absolutely loved everything about the campus, and it always brought me such joy every time I stepped foot onto it. I look forward to continuing my term on the board as long as I can.

I am honored to help in any way I can to promote Pitt-Greensburg. My alma mater took an unexperienced, high school graduate and gave me the skills and confidence to go out into the world and live my dreams of being a teacher and a coach. A simple thank you might do for giving you your education, but what do you say to the University that gave you the tools to live your dreams?
