Grew up on a farm in Mayes County, Oklahoma. Graduated from Adair High School. Completed BA from NSU in 1986. Moved to Stillwater and completed Ph.D. in 1994. My first academic position was at Northwest Missouri State in Maryville, Missouri. In 2000 I was recruited to the private sector and worked in the construction industry for 20 years. I am thrilled to be back at NSU teaching in the Environmental, Health, and Safety program.
In my free time I enjoy working outdoors, woodworking, and trying to stay in shape.
I am married, 35 years in July, and have two children, and a border collie.
