Academic Director, Center of Excellence for Teaching and Learning
(727) 444-6427


My educational background includes a BA in Political Science from Maryville College (Maryville, TN) and a MA from the University of South Florida in Comparative Politics and International Relations.  I have been with SPC since 1999, teaching American National Government, International Relations and Comparative Politics.   I am currently a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in Public Policy and Administration that is working hard to finish up soon.

I am currently serving as the Academic Director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at SPC through 2017.  During my time in this role, I will be teaching a little less and working in academic leadership a bit more.  This is an exciting challenge.  However, I am always available for my students and activity support their success!

My teaching philosophy is very student focused.  In all the course formats that I teach (traditional, online, and blended) students engage in critical analysis, in-depth discussions and active learning.

In each of my courses students are encouraged to critically explore the political world around them and begin to understand how government and politics affect their everyday lives.
