Curriculum Vitae


Biography

I was born in North Carolina, with a military family background. I
received my Undergraduate Degree for East Carolina University and my Graduate
Degree at Kentucky State University. My work experience consists of Public Sector
Dept. Of Corrections in North Carolina, Private Sector Juvenile Justice System in the
states of South Carolina and Pennsylvania.  

My area of interests includes working with Juveniles in Intervention and Reentry
Programs that contribute to reuniting the youth back in the communities and back home
with their families, Corrections and issues of mass incarceration and reentry programs
for those that have been incarcerated and entering back into the community with lack of
resources and support.

I have worked in Higher Education since 2003 and it is my goal to contribute to student
success by realizing that education should be a positive experience and relate to real
life experiences in each student’s life.  My philosophy is that higher education must go
beyond simply passing on information. It should involve rigorous training in the methods
of developing, analyzing, and communicating new knowledge and staying abreast of
current events. For many students, the most powerful lessons are learned in informal
discussions, working through problems and engaging in real life practices. The goal of
my teaching and center of my teaching pedagogy is active learning.
