    Admissions Staff

    Dawn Welch

    Senior Admissions Specialist – Lansing site

    Hometown: Saint Johns.

    Education: After serving as a police officer in the U.S. Army, my heart for helping others led me to Spring Arbor University.  Earning my bachelor’s degree in family life education gave me the tools to empower and educate others.  Soon after that, the realization that my desire to help could be assisted by an understanding of the ‘business side of the house’ prompted me to earn the Master of Science in Management, also at Spring Arbor University. As a member of the National Council on Family Relations, I maintain my CFLE – Certified Family Life Educator Designation. In 2012 I became a Certified MBTI Practitioner, which allows me to encourage/see growth in students as an instructor. Believing that learning is lifelong, I am pondering the options for my next educational path!

    Interests: I love spending time with my two brilliant daughters and my amazing husband, traveling to places near and far, reading, singing, writing and brain teasers.

    Testimony:  I have learned that even though I may not always comprehend, there is a greater plan for my life – one that I am not the author of. As a child of God, daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend, my journey thus far has been eventful. I have seen the power of the Lord working though me and through others; I truly believe that our purpose is to love and serve one another, and Proverbs 3:5-6 guides my steps

    Statement of Purpose: When a student leaves my office filled with excitement and hope about beginning a new program – a new journey – I think, “this is why I am here!” – to listen and to guide.

    Admissions & Corporate Representative

    Hometown: Eaton Rapids

    Interests: My main interest is to make sure my family has a relationship with the Lord. While pursuing that, I want to make sure I’m being the best son, husband, father, and friend I can to the people I love.

    Testimony: The Lord has taught me some amazing things and still continues to daily! I believe that He will continue to show me the value in helping others and to put others before myself. Each and every day I say “It’s another beautiful day Lord, please help to guide me in a way that I can serve you.”

    Statement of Purpose: To serve the Lord in everything! If I do that everything else will fall into place.
