What's your favorite thing about Bridgewater College?
Bridgewater College is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley – what could be better! We enjoy four beautiful seasons! Even more important, the community atmosphere at Bridgewater College is so uplifting and encouraging. I enjoy getting to know the people who surround me and the students I have an opportunity to meet and work with.
What advice do you have about the college search process?
My advice is for prospective transfer students – please plan ahead! Contact the transfer counselor at the four-year college or university of your choice as soon as possible. Seek their advice as to what courses will transfer and satisfy their graduation requirements. Learn as much as you can about their academic policies, financial aid packages, housing requirements, etc. Be diligent about completing your application and staying in touch. Your opportunities and options will be greater if you are well informed and complete the application process early.
What else do you enjoy outside of work?
I love spending time with family, especially babysitting my little granddaughter. In the spring, I enjoy flower gardening; in the fall and winter, I like to come inside and focus on remodeling projects.
