Employee stories: Making it all possible


Admissions Officer

My passion is education! After accomplishing my Bachelor’s degree, I pressed on and obtained my Master's from Strayer University. I am both a proud Strayer University employee and graduate. It excites me beyond measure to have the profound responsibility of assisting others to not only reach but exceed their potential.


Assistant Director of Student Affairs

I am a proud member of the Student Affairs team serving as one of the Assistant Directors. I quickly discovered that your opinion and ideas are welcomed and valued here.  Strayer is a proponent of new ideas and professional development. I am privileged to serve our students and interact with the bright minds and positive attitudes of the entire Strayer staff.


Vice Provost and School Dean

I started working at Strayer University in 2007 as an Adjunct Faculty member.  I chose to work at Strayer University because it is an innovative, student-oriented, and leading educational institution and because the position was one where I felt that I could put my creative, marketing, and teaching experience and talents to good use!
