Personal Interests

I love books, movies (I’m a Mel Brooks enthusiast), live music, and baking. I also play an inordinate amount of fetch with my border collies.


Education

BA in Political Science with a minor in Speech Communication from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

MA in Government (Comparative Politics) from American University in Washington, D.C.


Educational Philosophy

I’m a big believer in the old adage that education is what you make of it. To be well-educated, I think, requires a healthy degree of openness so that students challenge and broaden their understanding of the world and their place in it. The more students engage with their coursework and take advantage of opportunities on and off campus, the richer their experience will be. My hope is that college will foster students’ desire to become lifelong learners.
