  • IUBPC Motivations: I joined the IUBPC shortly after moving to this position. Shortly after my wife became pregnant and I needed to dedicate any and all of my extra time to my family during and after the arrival of the baby. Now that the baby is a toddler, I have a little extra time I can dedicate to supporting my fellow IU staff members by serving on the Council. I enjoy networking, brainstorming, and working as a team to bring about positive outcomes.
