Why do you do what you do?

I am a lifelong learner. Reading, writing, teaching and counseling have filled my life with joy and inspiration. Students provide a wealth of new information, experiences and reflections. This furthers my growth, both personally and professionally.

How do you make learning engaging?

I engage students with application activities and a fair amount of humor. I enjoy sharing my experiences as a Carroll student, professor, counselor and mother of two young kids. I also use a varity of media and technology to appeal to all types of learners.

What should students know about you?

My favorite part of teaching is when students are talking. I love the chitchat before and after class, the ah-ha moments during discussion, and all the questions.
