Why do you volunteer for the University of Hartford and the Alumni Association? Why do you think it is important to give back to your alma mater?
My experience at the University of Hartford opened up many exciting possibilities for me. It prepared me for my advanced degrees at Oxford and for the career I am pursuing today. I choose to give back to the University because I want to help other students see the full range of possibilities that a University of Hartford degree can provide.

Even though I finished my most recent University of Hartford degree in 2004, I never really managed to leave the University.  I have been involved in campus life for many years since then, as an instructor and staff member.  Being a member of the Alumni Board allows me to keep the fun going on!
