Why did you choose Empire State College? What do you think is the best thing about the college?
I chose ESC because it gave me the ability to finish my degree in a flexible and fast way.
How did Empire State College help you shape your personal and professional goals?
My mentor at ESC, Lisa Scarinci, helped me plan my degree to benefit me professionally with the knowledge I gained from the classes and topics I took part in.
What is your career highlight or proudest career moment to date?
Stepping onto the football field at Penn State, Michigan, Army, Wisconsin, Indiana and of course Rutgers as a part of the football coaching staff at Rutgers University.
What advice would you give to a current Empire State College student?
Set goals, make a plan to achieve those goals and stay the course!
Why do you give back to Empire State College?
I want others to pursue their dreams as I have been fortunate enough to do so for myself.
Anything else you would like to share with fellow alumni and students?
People will tell you that your vision is not realistic, that you need to just fall in line and take a job to take a job. Do not listen to them, because they do not understand true happiness.
