Upon completing my Masters degree, I began my professional career at Eastern Nazarene College where I served as a faculty member and Head Athletic Trainer for 20 years. My service experience includes working as an athletic trainer for the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center, the Pan Am Games, the Olympic Games, the US Figure Skating Championships and the Boston Marathon. I also served for many years as a Drug Control Officer for USADA and WADA. These experiences have provided great insight into national and international sporting events. Since coming to SNU in 2001, I have served as a faculty member, Athletic Training program director, Department Chair, Dean and now as Chair of Graduate Programs in Kinesiology which include the Master of Arts in Sport Management and Administration and the Master of Science in Exercise Science.
Hobbies or fun fact: My personal life includes great friends, enjoyment of travel (most recently to Ireland, Jamaica and Grand Cayman) and a great appreciation of quiet time at the beach.
