Educator, Coach and Mentor
B.S. Ed. Shippensburg University; M.Ed. Shippensburg University
Teaching and coaching have been big parts of my career and teaming those skills has resulted in a mentoring program of which I am proud. A regional director and assistant professor of business for Trine University′s School of Professional Studies, I have been an advisor and instructor.
I have been involved with many community service projects, but am most proud of the Carlin Park Elementary Mentorship Program that I started with the football team in 2009. The program has consistently sent 40 to 50 football players into the school each week during the spring semester. Players assist teachers with tutoring and class activities and build meaningful relationships with the students.
Previously at Hiram College in Ohio, I was a faculty member and head coach for football and men′s and women′s track and field and director of facility operations. At Defiance College in Ohio, I was an instructor and an assistant coach for football and track and field. I was also an assistant football coach at Hillsdale College in Michigan and Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. While at Shippensburg, I was the assistant to the associate athletic director, working with student–athlete eligibility, special events and fundraising.
