"I'm reading Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements. As we define what health and wellness means on our campus, this is the one definition we are considering. We've recently gone through a shift of our organizational chart for student affairs, and a new health and wellness cluster was created that includes campus recreation, student health services, student counseling services, and health promotion and wellness. As we move toward a common mission for health and wellness, we are discussing models and definitions that will encompass all of our department missions."

"I am reading Magnolia Journal, AB magazine, National Enquirer, The New York Times and Rossman & Schlatter's Recreation Programming: Designing Leisure Experiences. Yes, I do really read National Enquirer. It's mental crack for me."

"I am about to finish Option B by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant. It is all about resilience. I think that we ALL have had, or will have, major personal and/or professional setbacks and surprises in life. The book has great research and stats, as well as stories from the heart."
