I am a graduate of Davidson College, Davidson, NC (30 minutes north of Charlotte, NC), where I earned a Political Science degree and a graduate of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN where I earned a Masters of Education degree in Student Personnel Services. I worked at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and UT-Chattanooga in Residence Life before coming to Penn State Altoona in 1990 as an academic adviser. I supervise a first-year retention program, have taught first-year seminar and study skill courses and am a member of several on and off-campus committees. I chair an community organization that documents African American history in Central Pennsylvania.
