INTRO

My educational and teaching background is strongly rooted in the liberal arts, so being able to connect my strong belief in a curriculum that demands critical thinking and global consciousness to my passion for helping students is my dream job. Lyman Briggs College creates that atmosphere where students, faculty and staff all learn and thrive together to enhance and promote lifelong learning in a world that is expanding and changing, every day.

Outside of work, I am an avid runner and skier who enjoys bagpiping with the Glen Erin Pipe Band and spending time with my family.
