I am a professor and Chair of the History Department here at McDaniel College. I came to McDaniel in 2002, and I teach courses in Intellectual History, African American History, Women’s History, and Modern U.S. History. Recently, I was the Director of the Honors Program at McDaniel from 2015 to 2019.
In addition to teaching, I am a guest speaker for events and organizations including the Carroll County Public Library, Union Mills Homestead, Towson University, and other groups in the Greater Baltimore Area. I have served as President of the Maryland Collegiate Honors Council (2018-2019), leading an effort to modernize the organization, creating a web presence, hosting the annual conference, and bringing students into leadership roles. In my spare time I have been a coach for youth soccer and basketball as well as collegiate track and field.
