 - Featured Faculty Member


Joined Department: 1999

Studies: Exercise physiology, but I would love to look at just about anything related to physiology (depending on student interest.)

Birthplace: Lansing, Michigan

Hometown: Lexington, KY

Undergrad College: Marshall University

Favorite Food: Homemade bread, good fruits/veggies, Starburst Jelly Beans

Favorite Thing About Washburn: I love being able to interact with students (past and present).

Favorite season: Fall (closely followed by spring)

Favorite color: Blue

If I was not a professor, I would: either be a teacher or a minister.

One piece of advice that students should know: The faculty in Biology (and Washburn in general) like to interact with their students.  We worry when students just disappear from our classes, or when they aren’t doing well and we celebrate when they succeed.
