What can a student expect when taking one of your classes?

A student can expect an interactive classroom with a lot of hands on practical work. I try to have a light classroom where my students can feel free to interact and have fun.

What excites you about teaching at Marietta College?

Being an alumnus of Marietta College is what excited me about teaching at Marietta College. The atmosphere of the College and the relationships I have gained with my students has made teaching at Mariette College extremely rewarding.

When you aren’t teaching, what other activities do you enjoy?

When I am not teaching, I am usually working in my other role at MC as an Assistant Athletic Trainer or at a Marietta College sporting event.

Do you prefer flipping through the pages of a book or an e-book?

I love technology so I would have to go with an e-book.

What is your favorite location on campus and why?

My favorite location on campus is the DBRC because I rarely get out of the DBRC during the day and if I do I am usually on a field of some sort with a team.

What is your favorite Marietta College event?

My favorite event at MC is Graduation. I always enjoy listening to the different keynote speakers, and it is very rewarding to see the students you work with succeed.

What can a student expect when taking one of your classes?

Students should expect to have a lot of hands on application, as well as a lot of interaction when taking one of my classes. My classroom is more laid back to allow students to ask questions and interact with each other. I also try to have a good time while also making sure the students are understanding the concepts.

What excites you about teaching at Marietta College?

The small class sizes are very beneficial here at Marietta College. Typically after the first day of class I am able to know all the students names. This is important for me so that I can interact with the students while also addressing them by name.

When you aren’t teaching, what other activities do you enjoy?

I really enjoy working out, supporting our students in different events such as a theater production, music event or athletic event. I also enjoy baking and trying new recipes, and sharing them with the students!

Do you prefer flipping through the pages of a book or an e-book?

I really enjoy having an actual book in my hands. I am old fashion and still rent library books to read. I like actually seeing my progress!

What is your favorite location on campus and why?

Fenton Court on a sold-out basketball game is the best place to be. You can see the pride and school spirit, which is a lot of fun! The gym gets so loud and makes for a really fun and awesome atmosphere!

What is your favorite Marietta College event?

Midnight breakfast! This is a great time to interact with the students outside of the classroom and helping them re-energize before they have to start finals week. The bonus is that the faculty and staff get to sample the breakfast after the students have left which is always good!
