I Am West Georgia
Years at UWG: 2 ½ years.

What I really do: Manage the day-to-day operations of the university’s educational access channel and teach two courses in the Mass Communications Department.
Birthplace: Columbus, Mississippi.
Family: Two sisters, a one-month-old nephew and a circle of wonderful close friends and relatives.
People describe me as: Honest, direct, trustworthy and hard-working.
My favorite things to do: Travel, read thought-provoking books, watch movies, go shopping and enjoy my family.
My proudest accomplishment: I have achieved many personal and professional accomplishments over the years. But for this publication, my proudest accomplishment is making several field and studio upgrades to the UTV-13 facility in less than two years. Several funding sources on and off campus answered my requests and made this possible.
My passion: Life.
My pet peeve: Bad drivers.
Before UWG, I: Was program director of the Communication Studies and New Technology Program/lecturer at Morgan State University in Baltimore.
I joined UWG because: The job presented a challenge, I liked Dr. Goff and the school allowed me to be closer to my home state of Mississippi.
I stay because: I like my job and I need to work.
One thing I would change about UWG: I have two things.
The best advice I’d give to new faculty and staff: Each day you come to work give a 100 percent, then go home.

Most people don't know that: As a child, I used to love watching the Lawrence Welk Show.

The movie I think everyone should watch: The Contender.
My favorite memory: Most recently, when I held my nephew for the first time.
The person (alive or dead) I’d most like to meet: Oprah Winfrey.
What I would most like to have if castaway on an island: A yacht, a chef, a working cell phone and a volleyball.
What I would do if I won the lottery: Continue to work, travel more and help family, friends and others.
What I most want to contribute to students: Wisdom: I would like students to know that hard work, integrity, good character and honesty still mean something. Do the right thing when no one is looking.
