Vincennes University

I grew up in the Chicago area and received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Exercise Physiology from Northern Illinois University.  I teach Anatomy and Physiology courses as well as non-majors biology.

When I'm Not Teaching

I love both travel and sports photography.  I take pictures for the local high school sports teams to raise money for local charities.  I have traveled to Iceland, Alaska, Canada, the Galapagos Islands, and Africa and hope to keep checking places off my bucket list.   

This is a picture of me with a Raven named Pico in Iceland. Other than cats, I have 3, birds are my favorite animals.
