Welcome GSU Student Veterans!
I am excited to work at GSU as your Coordinator for Veterans and Military Personnel. I previously held positions as a certified school teacher, marine and college professor. I am committed to helping student veterans and students alike prepare for dynamic leadership roles in their professions and in their communities. My goal is to make you feel welcomed from the moment you come into my office. I look forward to working with you as you inspire to reach your goals.
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive veterans of early wars were treated and appreciated by our nation." - George Washington
