Joining ELI 360

July 30, 2009 0 Comments

I’ve been working with ELI 360 for a month now, and I’m excited to be a part of this talented team of people.  It’s rewarding to work at an organization that serves people by connecting them with opportunities for academic, professional and personal development.  One of the highlights of my five years as a director of international student recruiting at Abilene Christian University (ACU) was the opportunity to develop relationships with international students and their families, and witness the transformation these students made into young men and women of character who were prepared to change the world.  It was also rewarding to see the positive impact these students made in the lives of faculty, staff and their fellow students.  As I embark on this new adventure at ELI 360, I look forward to the chance to serve even more families and educational institutions, and to witness many more lives being changed.
