3rd Floor, Bruce-Trades Bldg.
Office Hours:By appointment
While I’m new to Berea and new to Kentucky, I’ve lived in the land of Higher Education all my life. You see, I was a “faculty brat” (that’s what they used to call those of us whose parents were professors), and one who never wanted to stop somehow being in school. I count myself lucky to have a job that not only lets me explore ideas with students, faculty and staff colleagues every day, but also allows me to learn from amazing teachers from across the disciplines (chemistry one day, history the next, agriculture, education, art, and Appalachian Studies . . .), and in different teaching roles (faculty, staff, TAs, peer consultants; classroom, co-curriculum, and labor). Off the clock (ha!), I like to read widely, watch German news and the occasional German detective show, and, above all, gather with friends. And someday, someday, I will again find time to dabble in making fused glass pieces.
