Personal Interests

I am happiest hanging out at home with friends and family.  I love game nights (think trivia) and game days (think football).  I’m an avid spectator for most sports.  These days you can find me around campus playing Pokemon Go with my son and our shih tzu pup.  When I travel, I am happiest if some form of water recreation is involved!


Education

BA, Furman University, 2001

MA, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 2004


Educational Philosophy

I believe that education is an ongoing, transformative process that takes place both within and outside classroom walls.  Make the most of everything you do at UT.  Get involved! You’ll learn as much from the people you meet as from the lectures you attend or the books that you read. Expose yourself to new experiences. Take a lesson away from every interaction and cherish the memories and relationships that result.


Favorite Quote

"Educated discussion should be more than gladiatorial opinion swapping.  Approach conversations with an open mind and an intent to fully understand a viewpoint other than your own."
