I earned my J.D. from the University of Missouri - Kansas City.  I practiced law for approximately 10 years, and then decided to switch the main focus of my career to teaching.  I have taught various levels of Economics and Government, and I also teach Applied Ethics here at SPC.  I love teaching, and hope to engage each and every student in active thinking and discussions regarding all aspects of Ethics. 

As my picture indicates, I love both mountain biking as well as riding my road bike.  Learning to paddle board is my newest challenge.  I am a geek at heart, so of course, I also love reading and learning.  I live for those "Aha" moments - both for my students, as well as for me.    

2014 Class and Textbook Update: 

Soon, a pre-graduation assessment is planned on being instituted – students will have to have knowledge of the critical thinking model that is taught in our course.

Important:   Regarding PHI 1600 - Applied Ethics:

This class requires the purchase or lease of the following textbook: Manias, Nicholas, Monroe, Dave & Till, Jane (2013), Ethics Applied, Edition 7.0 


Previous editions of Ethics Applied cannot be used for the course. You may only use edition 7.0.
