Wynton Marsalis once said “I don't need what you hate. Give me what you love. And if that costs you too much, at least give me what you like”. Working in higher education gives me the chance to work with people following their dreams, their passions and their love.
I’m proud to work as part of a great campus community that sees the potential in every student and in each other to do great things.
