Admin & Faculty
Position:Dean of Greendale Community College
I've been an educator for 10 years, a dean for four years, and a lifelong learner for life! My influences include Dean Will Anderson, Boz Scaggs, and the "spell check" function. When I started working with Greendale it was a modest college with minimal enrollment, and now that our enrollment has grown 25%, I've made sure we haven't lost our modesty! My special skills include walking backwards through campus while giving the renowned "Pelton Greendale Tour," and speech writing. If you're ever wandering campus in the evening, you may see me walking my beloved Saint Bernard, Agatha Christie. Don't let him scare you, he's a sweetheart, and the best roommate I've ever had. I'm very proud of my recent involvement in changing the school's team name from "The Greendale Grizzlies" to the more accessible "Greendale Human Beings." Go Human Beings!
"It is better to die having lived until death than it is to die having lived at all." Something like that. I have to look it up.
