The day-to-day within FDU is an absolute pleasure. When the students are not on campus we have an annual meeting/gathering with the entire university staff. We not only resolve many issues, but they have open communication and let us know as a community, where we were, where we're going and how to get us to the next level. Being in the Athletic office, some days it's quite and it allows my day to be more productive than other days when we have a full house.
Management has allowed me to take the reins since I am the first person to greet you in the morning and the last at the end of the day. I also know where someone is or who to contact if someone need additional help. My colleagues have been wonderful. We all have become much better at communicating since there has been a lot of change within the University and also, the athletic department has constant moving parts. I believe if anyone were to ask them what I have done for the department I believe they would say, "We have come together as a team." With that being said, I think it would be safe to say that the biggest challenge I have had was and still is at times is communication. For example, if we had an injury on our turf field with a rental and our site supervisor never told us, we in the end didn't do something right and made the situation more difficult to resolve.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the students. I enjoy being able to help them with things even outside of Athletics.
