Q: What brought you to AU? How many years have you been at AU?
A: I came to Anderson University while working for the Church of God Camp Meeting campground registration. During that week, I worked closely with some of the Reardon staff members. After observing me and my work, they asked if I would be willing to work with them for some summer events. I have worked for the university for almost 17 years.
