I retired at the end of the 2019-2020 school year after teaching at the college for 34 years. I was blessed with a job that I genuinely enjoyed every day! My students and colleagues were a daily inspiration for me—I will certainly miss that! Although my teaching days have concluded, I do plan to maintain my research laboratory on a limited basis so you may still see me around the science building (I’ll be the one holding a cup of coffee!). In retirement I hope to continue to pursue my passions for sailing, hiking, and jazz. If and when the pandemic subsides, I hope to travel a bit. For those of you who might remember my children (from class visits or babysitting) they are now young professionals and are doing well. My son Forrest is a civil engineer and lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with his wife Rebecca. My daughter Meredith is currently a resident at the University of Miami School of Medicine. Her specialty is pediatric behavioral medicine.
As always, I enjoy hearing from former students. Stay in touch and let me know what is going on in your life. Wishing you all the best!
