Faculty Spotlight Questions:
I am a transplanted New Yorker with a strong background and a great deal of experience in higher education. After interviewing with Dr. Wooden and learning about the growth of Grand Canyon University, I knew I wanted to be part of this expansion.

I enjoy being a part of student’s growth and development and watching the transition from high school to college. I am comfortable with and like working with faculty and staff who are friendly, intelligent and hard working.

GCU has a very diverse population, in faculty, administration and students. Take advantage of the exposure to the new and different cultures. This will help you grow intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Study hard and do well.
