I serve as the Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Co-Coordinator for UMN graduate students, and Early Career Coordinator for UMN Early Career faculty at the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). In addition to teaching in higher education for more than 25 years, I also serve as the Director of Educational Development at the College of Veterinary Medicine, facilitating several initiatives in teaching and learning including the Program for the Advancement of Classroom Excellence (PACE), CVM's peer assisted coaching program (VetPAC), the CVM Teaching Academy, Seminars on Teaching, and the faculty peer review process.

I teach several courses to doctoral students in preparation for their academic career as a professor, and help faculty/instructors enhance their teaching excellence at a major research university. I develop and facilitate workshops, retreats, presentations, and courses for both on-campus departments and educators in various higher educational institutions nationwide. I thoroughly enjoy ongoing family adventures, well-seasoned with good friends, writing, and reading as often as possible!
