What do you like best about your job?

I enjoy working with the young people and watching them develop throughout their high school career. I also enjoy working with our coaches, directors, and young people who are involved in extra curricular activities.

What do you dislike most about your job? Sometimes all the evening activities get to be a lot but it is more the setting up and cleaning up of them. I enjoy watching our student compete or perform. I could also live without some of the paper work and documentation that goes along with the job. All and all I really enjoy what I do.

One thing that you have learned over the years from your job?Always call officials a couple days in advance to make sure they are on the same page as you are and that it takes a lot of people willing to volunteer and help to make all the events we host and run go as smoothly as they do. I appreciate all the help and community support we have at Union.

What changes have you seen in your job since starting?

I have seen our high school change from a semester schedule to a trimester schedule which has provided a lot of opportunities for our young people. I have also seen our participation numbers increase in the high school which I am very excited about and a lot of our programs have had a lot of success which is great to see
