I was born into a family of educators and the value of higher education was engrained in my upbringing. I grew up going to class with my father, the difficult quantitative statistician, and I loved the energy that he and his students brought to the classroom. The comradery that he shared with his colleagues was contagious, and the flexible research schedule that comes with being a faculty member was enticing. I enjoyed my time in both private and public health care industries, but my true passion is for encouraging young adults to use their career as a platform for discipleship, and to treat others with love and compassion.
Favorite Course to Teach:
Social Epidemiology. This is a difficult course but when the students rise to the level of rigor demanded of the course, light bulbs go off, the true understanding of the course occurs and learning begins.
