About me, in my words

I came to Arkansas from Oklahoma in 2002. I began working for the University of Arkansas in 2005 in the support of classroom technology in The Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design and moved to the College of Engineering in 2011. I began working as a project manager in the Operations Management program in 2016, where I also began studying for the Master of Science in Operations Management degree, which I completed in 2018. My background in the development and support of technology in the classroom and my experience and education in instructional design and project management support my goal of providing comprehensive technology and instructional design support to faculty.


The best part about working with faculty is...

The opportunity to engage with a variety of content and continually learning new things. I am always excited when I am working with an instructor and we both learn something new about how to integrate technology or new ideas in the delivery of education.


When I walk across the University of Arkansas campus, I am always amazed...

How much growth there is. I believe this shows the dedication that the University has to always improving the quality of education and the quality of life of students and faculty.


My away-from-work passion is...

Spending time with my family in the beautiful Ozarks camping, fishing and boating.
