Prior to coming to Trine University, I was a faculty member at the University of Memphis and taught at several community colleges in the Memphis area. During my academic tenure I have co–authored several articles and been a presenter at several national conventions, including the National Institutes of Health. I also co–authored the textbook Developing Health Promotion Programs and have provided the ancillaries for Teaching Today′s Health, the leading text for teacher preparation in the U.S.

A member of the Indiana and American Associations for Health, Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, I have been a participant in all national conventions for several years. I am president of the Mental Health Association of Steuben County and have been involved in local social issues since coming to Steuben County. I am a founding member of the area women′s recovery house and have participated in jail ministries for several years.

Exercise Science recently moved from the Ketner School of Business to Jannen School of Arts and Sciences to become part of the newly formed Department of Exercise Science. Under this new umbrella, we are hoping to continue to move our curriculum forward to better meet the needs of our students and provide them with the tools to achieve and maximize their own personal goals.

My husband and I recently adopted our grandson, which keeps us busy in the world of school, sports, and meeting the needs of a growing middle–schooler.
