My Background
I completed a B. S. Degree in Geology at Western Carolina University, and a M. S. Degree in Geology at the University of Georgia.  I decided to major in Geology after taking two introductory courses at GPC’s Dunwoody Campus in the late 1980s (known as Dekalb College at that time).  Before those courses I had no intentions of majoring in science!

After completing my M. S. degree, I taught middle and high school sciences for two  years, after which I taught part-time at Western Carolina University in the Geoscience Department.  I came to GPC as the “lone geoscientist” at the Lawrenceville Campus in fall of 2001, where I remained until I transferred to Rockdale/Newton Campus in January, 2007.  Beginning January, 2016 due to consolidation, I’m here at the Newton Campus of Georgia State as part of Perimeter College.
