Bio

I am a first generation college graduate. My parents worked in factories and have a farm in Kentucky where we raised cattle, corn, tobacco, soybeans, alfalfa, and gardens.
I earned a BS in Geology & Geography and MS in Geography from Murray State University in Kentucky. After a Field Geology trip out West, I decided I wanted to move somewhere new, which ended up being Tucson, AZ. I earned a MS in Geosciences and PhD in Geography from the University of Arizona. I've done research on groundwater pollution, volcanic eruptions, tree-rings, climate change, and biogeography.

Courses taught: Fundamentals of Geography, World Regional Geography, Environmental Change, Geography of Warrior Women, Water Issues, Physical Geography, Weather & Climate, Natural Hazards, Geography for Teachers, Geography of East Asia, Intro to GIS, Advanced GIS, GIS Applications, Cartography, Map and Image Analysis, Biogeography (Biodiversity Environmental Change), Climate Change, University Strategies, Cherokee-Creek-Ojibwe Cultural Exchange (co-taught)
