Currently, I serve as the Associate Director for the David O’Maley College of Business in the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University at Daytona Beach, Florida. 

I am passionate about designing meaningful learning experiences for faculty and students alike that support adult development, content mastery, and pedagogical expertise. 


Currently, my pedagogical passion is game-based learning and am proud of The Scavenged, an alternative reality game around the 3Cs of the entrepreneurial mindset. We had a blast!

I care deeply about teaching and learning; my professional journey has informed and shaped the ways I explore, engage, and construct opportunities for meaningful learning experiences and faculty development. Students’ learning experiences are central to my work and I advocate for their voices to be included in the teaching and learning process. Empowerment is central to my work with students and faculty.I bring over 15 years of higher education teaching and teacher/faculty development experience. I have taught a wide range of undergraduate and graduate level courses, conveying the breadth and range of my areas of expertise; social justice, game based learning, action research, critical pedagogy, epistemology, assessment, and technology integration.

Previously I served at the Director for the Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation and teach “Part Play, Part Game: Gamers and Games” an Honors Freshmen Seminar at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. How do you compare these two higher education contexts? You can’t, it would be like comparing apples to oranges.
