Why I love teaching at Taylor:

I enjoy teaching in a place where I can be free to challenge students in matters concerning their Christian faith. The students are inspiring, the administration is very supportive and my colleagues around the campus are excellent.

Advice to incoming students:

Exercise science can lead to so many great opportunities, so don't worry too much about your career right now. Work hard the first semester and keep your options open by building a foundation for success for the rest of your college career.
