I moved to Bemidji in summer 2016 to join BSU as an Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies and to Direct the Honors and Liberal Education Programs. Before joining BSU I taught interdisciplinary courses in the Honors Program and Theatre Department at Northern Arizona University in Arizona (2011 – 2016) and Theatre at The College of Wooster in Ohio (2009 – 2011). I have three horses, four dogs, and a miniature donkey!
