    I love being wife and home-schooling mama of three amazing children, a speaker and teacher for churches and community organizations, and author. Traveling is a major interest as I always enjoy seeing the diversity of people and cultures as unique and beautifully creative! Dance, reading, poetry, baking and essential oiling are all favorite pastimes... especially with my family!

  • Personal Philosophy

    Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear..."

    Higher education is a gift that we should not take for granted; it is a great privilege. Students and faculty are equally responsible for creating learning environments which foster collaboration, respect, mutual understanding, and engagement. I'm a firm believer in learning together and enjoy every opportunity to co-create unique, challenging learning opportunities inside and out of the classroom. I love my job and consider it an awesome privilege to be at CBU!
