The Professor


After six years as an assistant professor in the School of Education at North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND, USA, I left the frozen plains for a warmer climate, Abu Dhabi.  For two years, I was the department head of the Curriculum & Educational Technology Division at the Emirates College for Advanced Education in Abu Dhabi, UAE.  It was an amazing time; we were introduced to amazing new foods and learned a great deal about working and living outside the US.  We would have stayed longer, but a career opportunity presented itself and I felt it was time to return to the US.  We now reside in Muncie, IN, were we both work at Ball State University.  I am the Associate Dean of the Teachers College and Kevin is an instructor in the math department. We also host two Airbnb rooms: The Cardinal Nest and The Cardinal Perch.  This has allowed us to continue meeting people from across the globe. I love to teach and research, but my passions are travel, cooking, and photography.

Follow me and my passport as I explore the sites, culinary treats, and stunning architecture of this amazing world.
