“I admire the students at American National University because they have made choices that have the potential to change their lives. It is not easy to make a major change like attending college, but once they realize they can do it, it is exciting for everyone involved.


“I like to challenge my students to treat attending school like having a job. This means they need to be punctual, responsible, and professional.


“The best things about being part of the American National University faculty are the students, the staff, and the other faculty members. It is truly like being part of a family.”
