My career in academia began over 23 years ago, teaching Public Administration, both online and face-to-face, at the graduate and undergraduate levels.  My research and teaching focus on public policy, environmental justice, and sustainability.

     As someone who began a public service career on Capitol Hill as a Legislative Aide, later working at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, I am able to bring my public service experience and knowledge into the classroom.  My passion for teaching, the environment, and public service has enabled me to provide high-quality courses, both online and in-person for many years. 


 In 1997, I taught my first online course for the newly established, Florida Gulf Coast University in Ft. Myers, FL.  Online learning has come a long way since then.  My goal in online teaching is to provide students with a high-quality and engaging learning experience, using the latest technology.
