- How long have you been at WCU?
- How did you land at WCU?
"Prior to coming to WCU, I worked in an extremely high-pressure management position.
After a particularly stressful week I went on-line "just to see what other opportunities
might be out there for me". I applied to a position at WCU and received an invitation
a few weeks later to interview with Dr. Jeff Harris. Who could turn down any position
working for Jeff Harris?"
- What's the best part of your job?
"The people - students, faculty and staff. I expected the faculty to be aloof, but
they're not. They are fun, wacky, approachable, caring individuals. Across the campus,
I have found the staff to be unbelievably welcoming and always willing to help. Within
the College of Health Sciences, I have made some of my most loyal and dearest friends.
Finally, the students are remarkable. They make me laugh at their stories, their wit,
and their escapades. They warm my heart with their gratitude for the smallest effort
made on their behalf. Their intelligence, perseverance and resilience give me hope
for the future."
- What do you wish you could share with all incoming first-year students?
"Relax and enjoy your college experience. Certainly study hard, but make time to take
advantage of the wonderful extra-curricular opportunities available to you. Join a
club, attend events, volunteer, take a trip. The four years will go by very quickly.
Be sure to take time to make some memories that will last a lifetime."
- What do you wish you could share with all graduating seniors?
"Explore your options and don't be afraid to try something new. Your education and
degree from WCU will help open doors for you, but you don't have to walk through the
same door that everyone else does. As Robert Frost pointed out, sometimes taking the
path less traveled can make all the difference."
- What makes you most proud of WCU?
"I am very proud of the University's commitment to providing a quality education while
remaining dedicated to maintaining ethical and fair standards for students, faculty
