How did he or she get to UNCW? Let us know whom we should write about next, a colleague or peer who "bleeds teal" – and we'll honor all our profiles with a special luncheon at the end of the year.

I joined UNCW on January 24, 2007. Before that I was at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY.

I met Vice Chancellor Leonard at a conference and she told me all about UNCW and that there was an opening for the Health Center Director - it sounded like a great opportunity, so I applied.

Even in my relatively short time there has been so much construction, making campus even better for everyone. I especially like the Cross City Trail and the opportunities for outdoor activity it brings.

Seeing a student bring a surf board with them to the Student Health Center
