你是怎么立博体育的?

我希望在完成我的博士学位后,从种族主义,同性恋,农村北卡罗莱纳州搬迁。并在高等教育编年史上看到了一份工作。我以前所在机构的一位高尔夫伙伴和她的丈夫一起在这里度过了很多,并说它很漂亮。当我来面试时,我爱上了这个地区。我还想在一个规模较小的机构任教,优先考虑本科教育,在更大,更有声望的机构中拒绝高薪职位。

你职业生涯的一些亮点是什么?

Impacting the lives of the students I work and have worked with, seeing them flourish in their careers and in life post-graduation. I was proud to be a faculty honoree for an 校友 Award of Excellence recipient. My commitment and love for teaching were validated several years ago when I was nominated for (by Western students), and subsequently received, the College & University Teacher of the Year award by the Colorado Association for Health and 体育.

对你的领域最兴奋的是什么?

通过促进终身体育活动积极影响人们生活的能力。我不能想到另一种技能(除了阅读之外),这种技能比作为一个熟练的推动者更重要,能够在一生中安全地参与各种各样的身体活动。

关于gunnison山谷,你最喜欢的是什么?

我非常重视能够参加我喜欢的体育活动而无需旅行:冰球,骑自行车,滑雪,皮划艇和徒步旅行。社区的规模使得发展强大的社会关系变得容易,并有机会进行有意义的社区参与。我曾担任过枪支导师的董事会主席,作为园艺师在社区做志愿者,目前在Gunnison市的公园和娱乐咨询委员会任职。
