Introduction
I am the Director for Technology-Enhanced Instruction at Jamestown Community College. I absolutely love my job. I am passionate about technology, education, and lifelong learning. I can't wait to share with others.

When not working, I am the chief of staff for the Rocky Mountain Region, Civil Air Patrol. I also teach a martial arts group... Bujinkan Laramie Dojo.

I was just awarded a doctorate in education  through the  University of Wyoming  Department of Professional Studies. My research interest is informal learning among extension educators.

I enjoy helping others.
