Before joining SEMO in August 2018, I taught for almost 7 years at the University of Oklahoma (Norman, OK) as a graduate student instructor. Cape Girardeau is a much smaller town than Norman, but I thoroughly enjoy the peace and lifestyle here. In my free time, I like to read novels, go for a hike and appreciate nature, and watch movies (my favorite genres are horror and mystery).
