Professor of English and Education
Chair, Department of Middle School and Secondary Education
I have been an educator for my entire career, coming to Gordon College in 1990 after spending 13 years in classrooms in central Illinois where I was a middle school language arts teacher and a composition instructor at the university level. A member of the National Council of Teachers of English and the New England League of Middle Schools, I have presented in both venues and have worked with middle and high school teachers as a professional development provider. Education is more than just a career, it is also my passion. The best part of my job is supervising student teachers. When not in Gordon’s classrooms, I am in area middle and high schools observing the Gordon students in action.
Truly, the educational field is a mission and an obligation—we have no greater resource than the next generation.
I have been writing book reviews of young adult literature for about 10 years, most currently my reviews can be found in the childrenslit.com database.
My husband and I have started to dig deeper into his family’s Scottish heritage, which also seems appropriate for someone teaching in the classrooms of the Fighting Scots.

Pre-Health Professions Advisor
B.S. Gordon College, Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Brandeis University, Post-Doc at MIT and Harvard Medical School under Hidde L. Ploegh
My work in the field of biology involves various things related to antibodies, including how they are transported from mother to young, as well as how to make antibodies of desired binding specificity most easily. I have also studied how viruses trick the immune system to avoid detection. Most recently, my research has focused on generating antibodies for diagnostic tools that can be used by the world's poor. On a recent sabbaticals at MIT and the Whitehead Institute, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, I was able to explore the use of new micro-scale tools to speed up the process of antibody screening. I am now using this system, called "microengraving" at Gordon College.
I enjoy unusual hobbies, for instance I taught myself to ride a unicycle in 5th grade. It is my dream to play the didgeridoo well, and I am also trying to learn to play the musical saw, but I don't practice enough! I also enjoy growing my own vegetables and making homemade tomato sauce.

After serving as the Director of Financial Planning and Budgeting at Gordon for several years, I joined the accounting faculty.

One of the great responsibilities of teaching at a Christian institution such as Gordon is to help students progress toward their ultimate calling as part of God's kingdom. There is a tremendous need for Christian businessmen and women in our society; business leaders who will follow biblical principles in how they manage employees, report earnings, perform audits and many other functions of businesses around the world.
Should you ever get the urge to play Peter Rabbit, I maintain a vegetable garden during the warmer months and live only a short walk from campus.

B.A. Gordon College
M.Div. Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
I have nearly three decades of youth ministry experience in my background, much of it in New England, and I serve as an advisor and board member for a number of national and regional ministries. I am committed to the life changing effect that cross-cultural youth ministry has on young people and committed to helping students discover their leadership potential through the Center for Student Leadership.
I was a youth pastor for 18 years before joining the faculty at Gordon. I'm also a Lieutenant/EMT in the Rye (NH) Fire Department, something I've done for 20 years. Get in a bind in our town this summer and odds are I'll pull up in the fire truck.
During the basketball season, I'm the Voice of the Fighting Scots, announcing the action in the Bennett Center during the games. I've been very active with the athletic department at Gordon and would be happy to answer any questions you might have about sports at Gordon.

Dean of Student Engagement
Program Coordinator, Deciding majors
I have many great roles on campus helping students engage their learning in and out of the classroom – academically, socially, physically and spiritually, and one of these is coordinating our program for students
still deciding their academic areas of interest.
Whether you’re like me, and would gladly sign up for three or four majors, or you are just unsure of which one major might be a good fit for you, beginning your Gordon experience as a Deciding student can be a positive stop toward discovering a major you can learn to love. One where you can build a solid academic foundation from which you can learn to be an effective steward in the world with the strengths and talents God has given to you.
You can find out more about deciding on a major in the Deciding a Major pages.
I've been a youth soccer coach for 25 years; I learned that I love to create opportunities for others to learn and experience success - even small successes. I also learned I love to compete, and express that at soccer, and at golf, tennis, and sailing. I also just love to learn - to fix my house, my car, my technology, to cook something creatively, or to write a clever phrase. I'm rarely bored and I'm usually not sitting still.
Find something you love to do, learn to do it well, and share it with joy.
You can email, or call the Center for Student Development, to connect with me.
