A Conversation With Jonathan

How do you like to stay active?

I like to physically stay active by playing sports, walking my dog Ezra, going on walks/hikes, and visiting state parks. I like to mentality stay active by playing video games, reading news articles, and listening to music.

What do you like most about your career in Campus Rec?

We have the opportunity to truly transform people’s lives through recreation, fitness, and sports. Every day brings new challenges to overcome. Supporting students through their collegiate journey is worthwhile.
