What I Find Rewarding About D&E:

Having the opportunity to work closely with students, faculty, and staff is my favorite part of my job. I enjoy seeing the students work hard to create theatre and see the joy they experience when this hard work pays off in a successful theatre production. I am grateful to be in an environment of dedication and collaboration that leads to the success of our students and our college.
