How does your past or current professional life impact the way you teach IHS courses, and vice versa?
I have taught on campus and online and value building relationships with students. I am deliberate at designing my courses to foster a virtual classroom. Weekly communication is essential to building a positive classroom environment.
What activities do you enjoy outside of work?
I enjoy spending time with my husband and five children. I love to bake, cook, garden, read, ride my bike and hike. I also love to host dinner parties, cookouts and events with family and friends.
What are some words of wisdom you would like to share with students?
Be a planner, stay organized, and always make a list. Communicate with your professors if you feel overwhelmed or need help because we want you to be successful at Ohio University. The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited. - Plutarch
