Director of Online Programs & Curriculum Tech Center, Ohio University.

I am passionate about academia, higher education, student affairs, technology, and social media. I manage the Curriculum Technology Center (CTC) in The Patton College of Education. The CTC serves our faculty, staff, and students by creating quiet spaces to study, and our computer labs have the most up-to-date software provided by Ohio University for all research and creative needs.

I have presented at AACTE and Google for Education conferences on the social media plan we have designed and I serve as the webmaster for the college. I truely believe that high quality social media and web presence is imperative to stay connected and engage with our students, alumni, and community.

I have an active lifestyle and love the outdoors. Give me a kayak, golf clubs, hiking shoes, football game, or coffee, and I'm a happy camper.
