Associate Professor and Chair of Dance
When I came out for my interview, I was pretty much a city kid, and as I was driving out here, past all the cornfields, I kept thinking, "no way will I take this job!" One of the first things I did as a part of my interview was teach a dance class. I was blown away—the students were amazing! I had never taught a room full of people so hungry to learn. As I was driving home I thought, "I have to have this job!" I came to Knox because of the students who were here that day. I stay because the caliber of students has never wavered.

I would be an adventure travel guide. I would be the person on the camel leading a group through the Valley of the Kings.
