Thinking about all the programs we have done in the past and how they can be refreshed and renewed with new technology and a new enthusiasm brought on by current students.

WHAT ARE YOU LOVING?

My family – my husband, two children, their significant others and my grandchildren, my friends and Maryville.

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO?

Always planning for trips, changing things at my house and creating something.

WHAT ARE YOU DREADING?

I hate to write out my bills and get my tax info in order.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

New ways to present health and wellness information to our students/campus.

WHAT ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT?

Spring – spring break – planting – summer…

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING?

Grace and Frankie

WHAT ARE YOU READING?

I read about 2 books at a time – mostly mysteries and via audiobooks so I can multitask

Audiobooks

WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?

Layers.  I hate being cold but you know St. Louis weather – it will change in half a day or less.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING THIS WEEKEND?

Watching my grandchildren, cleaning, cooking, shopping, listening to books on disc, walking with my friends and maybe getting my tax stuff together.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH?

Missouri Assessment of College Health Behavior, an anonymous survey that all the state colleges/universities in Missouri ask their students to take along with seven private schools that are part of the Partners in Prevention Coalition.  It assesses many health aspects of students on campus.  We have done this for the past seven years and Maryville students always have a high level of response which really helps us know more about our population (Way to go Maryville!) and therefore make better programming available.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

I am on the Sustainability council because I am passionate about using resources wisely, recycling/reusing/reducing and respecting people and our environment.  I really admire that Maryville has Sustainability as a core value, and I love being on committees with our faculty and staff.  Some great minds.
