After spending 27 years in corporate sales and marketing, I was blessed with opportunity to enter the teaching profession. After teaching math 3 1/2 years in a high school, 3 years at LBJ Job Corp., and several years teaching as an adjunct lecturer at WCU and SCC; I began full time at Western Carolina University in the fall of 2014.

Teaching Interests

My primary responsibility is teaching and to that end I have dedicated myself and my time to that extremely important task. Each and every day, I give 100% (pouring out my ‘heart and soul’) and I expect and continually encourage all my students to do no less. To that end, I believe that my major contribution for the year has been to lay the foundation (or if you prefer a ‘bridge’) that has facilitated my students’ success both in and out of the classroom.
