I have been teaching Freshman Seminar/First Year Seminar since 2006, and enjoy it immensely. Helping prepare students to be successful college students and gain an appreciation for positive citizenship is incredibly rewarding. Teaching this course combines this opportunity with one of my other passions, which is marketing. My undergraduate background is in Interdisciplinary Studies, and I believe strongly that an interdisciplinary approach is not only valuable, but necessary as a tool for transitioning bright, successful high school students who can test extremely well into thoughtful college students who can think critically and ultimately become creative problem-solvers who are passionate about responsible citizenship.

I hold a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies from Appalachian and an MBA in Management from Wake Forest University and work full time at Appalachian as the Marketing/PR Director for the university. I grew up nearby, have generations of family roots in the area, and highly value community and family. I run with my dog as often as possible and listen to tons of podcasts.
