  • Professional Experience

    Prior to starting in this position at NGU I served as the Director of Admissions and Enrollment Operations and as the Director of Student Services for Cambridge Academy in Greenwood, SC. Prior to that was the Senior Army Instructor for the JROTC program and Varsity Girls Soccer coach at Clinton HS in Clinton, SC. Lastly, prior to that I served on active duty in the U.S. Army as an enlisted Engineer then Aviation Officer for a little over 20 years. All of these positions allowed me to work with many individuals in a capacity that helped shape their professional and/or scholastic careers.

  • My Story

    I am a retired U.S Army Officer and former educator that has been blessed by God far more than I deserve. My wife and I met as teenagers, went to prom, dated for a couple years and have been married ever since. We have four amazing children. Three who have finished college (2 NGU grads) and found careers and the last one is a currently enrolled at NGU. The most important lesson I have learned in life is to be happy, spread joy and count your blessings every day. God is good every day in every way, and he wants us to be joyful.
