Why Geology? 

I chose to be a geologist because I have always loved science and spending my time outdoors; it seemed to be the perfect fit! I enjoy hiking, seeing the natural wonders of Earth, and of course, fossil and rock collecting!

Teaching Style 

In my courses, I like to incorporate real-world examples of problems for students solve. I also incorporate as many field-based lab exercises as possible in my courses. Field experience is paramount to a successful hands-on education, one that I have found to be fulfilling as an instructor. Through this, I have found that field-based, hands-on learning better helps student learn and retain important material, which leads to success during their time at Mount Union and beyond.

Being a Professor

My favorite part of my job is interacting and mentoring students, seeing them grow both as a student and as an individual during their four years at Mount Union.
