"Sometimes life provides us with lots of roadblocks, and many do not seem to be fair, but I look forward to encouraging students and alumni as my team and I help them discern their career path for this season in their lives. I truly believe that God has a perfect plan for each of us, and I identify with the Psalms 37:25: 'I was young and now I am old, yet I have NEVER seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.' Each obstacle is turned into a training experience that prepares us for the special job that God has for us."
