Teaching at Ferrum since: 2004

Hello to all health care interested students. I come from a profoundly experiential background steeped in medical and educational activities, so I "have been there and done that" already. I thoroughly enjoy what I get to do on a day to day basis at Ferrum, and I am enthusiastic about helping students find their way into the health profession best suited to their talents and needs. My "success" is quite simply measured by the attainment of your life goal, and I will always be as commited to that as you are!

Courses taught:

  • Human Anatomy and Physiology I & II
  • Human Nutrition
  • Health Sciences Professional Prep
  • General Biology II
  • Vertebrate Zoology
  • Healthy Human Body/Diseased Human Body
  • Senior Seminar

Research Intrests
I have been examining age related differences in atherosclerotic plaque formation in human cadavers we dissect, and I am always looking for students who share an interest in the cardiovascular system. Aside from that, my major interest is in developing new methodologies for the assessment of student learning. It is my belief that students must apply what they learn in order to be prepared for the rigors of professional graduate studies.
