I have dedicated my professional life to managing small medical clinics and to teaching undergraduate and graduate students in health care, human services and public health programs. I have been managing medical clinics for more than 20 years. In addition, I am an assistant professor, teaching adult learners in the classroom and online.

One of the most valuable aspects of my teaching career has been the ability to work with a diverse population of students. I teach at Saint Mary's University and am a Saint Mary's University Faculty Fellow. In the past I taught students at all levels from Associate Degree to Masters. Much like you, I am also an adult learner. I recently completed my second master's degree; an MS in Human Services from Capella University.

I enjoy reading, biking, watching movies, and playing the piano.  I also enjoy spending time on and near the lakes of Minnesota.
