Department of Chemistry




Vincennes Campus

I joined VU in 1997 after working several years in industry as an engineer.  Now, I am the Chairperson of Chemistry Department.  I earned my Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Purdue University and a Master of Science Degree in Chemistry from Indiana State University.  Here at VU I teach General Chemistry, Introductory Chemistry, Elementary Chemistry, Chemistry of Food Preparation, Chemical Engineering Calculations, and Engineering Thermodynamics.

When I'm Not Teaching

I advise Chemical Engineering, Food Science, and some Pre-Professional majors like Pre-Optometry and Pre-Dental.  Along with my teaching and Chairperson duties, I also assist with VU’s Chemistry Club and am involved with the American Chemical Society as a local section secretary.
