Montgomery College has been my home for many years and has provided me wonderful opportunities to serve the community.  Whether it was providing leadership opportunities for students in The Office of Student Life or educating the community about financial aid opportunities as a Financial Aid Counselor, I have spent some of the best years of my life at Montgomery College.  There is nothing more rewarding than watching a student’s growth and achievements; Nothing more humbling than knowing that in some small way you may have assisted them in reaching their goals. It is why I love Montgomery College, and why I believe we truly “empower our students to change their lives, and we enrich the life of our community”.
