If you did not work in higher education, what would you be and why?
If I did not work in higher education, I would open a home-canning business. I hold
the secret to my Grandma Ruby's pickles.
What is your favorite place on campus and why?
Ouachita feels like home. I love walking the entire campus. My favorite spot is a
particular practice room in Mabee Fine Arts Building where my husband proposed.
