What can a student expect when taking one of your classes?
Doing a lot of reading, engaging in a lot of class discussion, and making strong connections between the world of the textbook and the business world.
What excites you about teaching at Marietta College?
Small classes allow me to work with students as individuals.
When you aren’t teaching, what other activities do you enjoy?
I am an avid kayaker. Hiking, walking, taking photographs, bowling, swimming, reading, and working in my garden are also enjoyable pastimes.
Do you prefer flipping through the pages of a book or an e-book?
No doubt about it: a paper book. Reading is a kinesthetic activity; I have to touch, see, and smell the pages of a book, journal, or newspaper to get the full impact of the words on a page.
What is your favorite location on campus and why?
There’s a line of tall pine trees in between Erwin and Irvine Halls. I like to stand under them at all seasons of the year and smell the pine scent, look for hawks building nests in the treetops, and touch the bark of the trees.
