I have taught biology for over 30 years, and really enjoy working with students and helping them be successful in science and excited about the many ways that biology applies to their lives. For my doctoral degree program at NAU, I studied SMCC’s Bilingual Nursing Fellowship Program, and based on this research I published both a quantitative paper (Bilingual Nurse Education Program: Applicant Characteristics that Predict Success, 2012) and a qualitative paper (An Evaluation of Student Interpersonal Support in a Spanish-English Nursing Program, 2014). I have lived for extended periods in Germany, China, Columbia, and Peru, and continue to be fascinated by other cultures and lands. I have a great interest in biological research and like the fact studies are providing fascinating new answers (and new questions!) each day that can be brought into my teaching.

I enjoy traveling and being out in nature, and go biking, kayaking, swimming, and camping whenever I can. Most summers my wife and I are off to a new and usually exciting location. I ride my bike to SMCC several times each week, and sometimes see javelinas, roadrunner, coyotes, or owls along the canal bike path. I enjoy birdwatching and hiking, and feel privileged to be living in an area where there are so many beautiful places to explore.
