Welcome to another episode of LIFE WORK BALANCES!
Today I had the chance to sit down with Craig Elliot, who is the Assistant Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services at Samuel Merritt University. I was lucky enough to meet Craig through past guest and friend becky martinez at this year’s ACPA conference, and it was really awesome to learn more about him and hear his awesome story. We had a great time talking about kids, growing up in California, sports, working in residence life, moving across the country, returning to one’s alma matter, office culture, and deciding on careers around raising a family. We also talked about coaching kids teams, staying involved in playing sports, community involvement, making nights in a family process, mornings, story time, the value of life and family, and a whole lot more.
NOTE: We had a bunch of different tech issues over the course of recording this interview. The first 20 minutes have a bit of static, and there are a few awkward pauses where skype hung up on us. I still think the conversation was great, but the quality of the recording is not at the normal standard. I think its still worth listening to, so please bare with me.
