After earning my degrees in the state of Arkansas, I accepted a position at Northeastern State University in 1995. In the following years I have taught a number of different courses and guided both undergraduate and graduates in research projects on a number of topics. I am a field biologist who studies birds!


  • PhD, Zoology, University of Arkansas, 1997
  • OtherM.S.E. Master of Science in Education, Biology, Henderson State University, Summa cum laude, 1990
  • OtherB.S.E. Bachelor of Science in Education, Biology, Henderson State University, Summa cum laude, 1987
I study Swainsons Warbler Natural History and Northern Saw-whet Owl migration in eastern Oklahoma. These projects involve both undergraduate and graduate research projects, and allow undergraduate students to gain experience with mist-netting, banding, and other field research skills.
I teach both Introductory Biology Lectures and Labs as well as upper level courses such as Evolutionary Biology, Ornithology, and Parasitology. My teaching load includes both laboratory courses and field courses.
