"Thank you, UVU and the facilities management department, for accepting me, challenging me, and strengthening me."

"I started my facility management degree in the fall of 2023. I am close to finishing my 33rd credit at the end of the semester. I plan to graduate in December of 2024. I can do hard things. YOU can do hard things. The professors and leaderships at UVU, especially in the facilities management program, are fantastic. They start as your professors, and you leave the semester with friends. They are passionate in your success. I am passionate about becoming an eminent female leader. Thank you, UVU and the facility management department, for accepting me, challenging me, and strengthening me. I will not disappoint you."

"Our hands-on learning approach offers students a real-world experience."

"I really enjoy teaching in UVU’s Facilities Management Program and our hands-on learning approach that offers students a real-world experience. Most of our students are currently employed in the industry, and this really helps drive discussion in the classroom. Additionally, I enjoy working with students to help them with industry connections and provide them with internship and employment opportunities that can help with their careers upon graduation. Not just for their first job, but for a great career in facilities management."
