Joe Wills Presents: "A Novel Runs Through It: How Writing (Mostly) Good Sentences and Building Good Relationships Led to a Fulfilling Career"

“I have loved writing -- my quiet side -- and getting to know people – outgoing side – for as long as I can remember. During my life I have had the privilege to hold many varied and rewarding jobs, including high school teacher, small-town newspaper editor, counselor, bus driver, home dad, and public affairs director, my position for the past 16 years at Chico State. All the while, I have asked myself, perhaps not often enough:  How will this job help me fulfill my heart’s desire?  What kind of balance will I have, between work and play, office and home, making a buck and making a difference, working quietly by myself and working collaboratively with others? In this presentation, I will talk about what I have learned along the way and how I have been fortunate to find a home in higher education, at Chico State, where many of my goals and interests have come together.”
