“I have so many Hidden Chaplains at Princeton who make coming to work so special. From my supervisor (Dean Zeltner) who goes above and beyond to support my personal and professional development to people in other areas of Campus Life, like UHS, the Fields Center, Pace, and ORL. I can’t tell you how supportive it feels to walk into a Campus Life meeting and see faces of folks who I not only count as colleagues, but also as mentors and friends. The passion, encouragement, and expertise that these people bring to their work helps me continue to grow.
Now for the cheesy part, I love working with students. I was honored that you nominated me for this- but the truth is, you’re my Hidden Chaplain too. It is truly a mutual admiration society. The relationship that we’ve been able to build reminds me all the time about why I got into this field. I walk away from most of our conversations with a new perspective and renewed energy. Whenever you stop by my office to chat about the big things or the little things, it always brightens my day. You’ve helped me grow in new ways- and I know I’m a better person because of it.”
