"Life is no ′brief candle′ for me. It is a sort of splendid torch....I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations." – George Bernard Shaw
B.A. English and speech/oral communication, M.A., education – Morehead State University.
It has been my privilege to teach at Trine University for the past four years. Before moving to northeast Indiana in 2005, I had lived and worked in southern Ohio all my life. I taught high school English for 10 years in Portsmouth, Ohio.
I am thrilled to be at Trine and have the opportunity to pursue my passion for literacy and education and make a difference in the lives of people. I hope to continue my education and never stop learning!
In my free time, I love travel, drama and spending any time I can with my husband and children. I am an avid sports fan. I also love to read and enjoy writing poetry and short stories.
