Professor of Physics and 3-2 Engineering Program Coordinator
Chair, Physics Department
I'm passionate about making sure my work extends beyond this lab's walls. I have 11 U.S. patents ranging from sports equipment to tools for pharmaceuticals research. Most of my career has been working with metallic glass alloys, which has helped me collaborate on a few tech start-ups, I currently serve as President and Chief Technical Officer for Glassimetal Technology in Pasadena, California, and partnered with a Gordon alum and former student to found the Massachusetts-based tech venture, ADE3D.
I joined Gordon College's Physics Department in 2007, after twelve years of industry experience. I hope to use this experience to help Gordon students connect their classroom experience with their real-world potential. I helped shape the College's 3-2 engineering program into a top-rate option for driven engineering students, expanded student research and internship opportunities, and instituted enrichment and outreach programs including weekly study sessions for local high schoolers.
I frequently consult for Golf Digest magazine's annual equipment guide.

Dr. Noseworthy joined Gordon in August 2012 after completing her Ph.D. in plant biology at University of New Hampshire. Her primary research interests include improving nutritional content in vegetables and its impact on human nutrition. She conducted a comprehensive study of carotenoid profiles of winter squash (Cucurbita spp.) and sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) aimed at improving varieties of squash and sweet potato by selecting for higher carotenoid content. Her other interests include organic and sustainable food production, greenhouse plant propagation and plant biotechnology. Dr. Noseworthy enjoys teaching and mentoring students both in the classroom and the laboratory.
I grew up on the seacoast and know many of the local beaches, rivers and estuaries and enjoy identifying local algae and marine life. I maintain a kitchen garden and I enjoy utilizing seasonal vegetables to cook new recipes.

Assistant Professor of Business
After serving as the Director of Financial Planning and Budgeting at Gordon for several years, I joined the accounting faculty.
I teach accounting, federal taxation and financial management of NPO’s, I’m a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and member of the Massachusetts Society of CPA’s and the American Institute of CPA’s.
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.

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.

Talk to a current Gordon Student
Ever since I was twelve years old, I wanted to go to Gordon. It was where one of my five sisters went, but it was still my dream school. However, applying as only an average student I knew that it would be very challenging for me to make it in. Although I was an undecided major for almost two years, today I am proud to say that I am a senior social work major here at Gordon. I did it, and I absolutely love this place. I have remained an average student, but I have excelled in other areas of my college career that continue to shape me into the person I want to be in the world someday.
I have played on the women's varsity soccer team the past three years and this upcoming year I was nominated as captain of the team. I work for the Executive Vice President, Dan Tymann, as his assistant all throughout the year and summer. The people I work with are incredible. Someday I hope to be a social worker assisting the elderly population, helping them to comfortably remain in their homes while I research and provide programs and services to meet them where they are at. Gordon has already provided me with an internship where I can do exactly that next spring semester and I can't wait to start! My passion is helping people, loving on people and seeing God's subtle but incredible grace within people.
My two absolute favorite things to do in life are apple picking and whale watching. So random I know, but those were the two things I loved most as a kid when we got to do them. I guess I still haven't grown up completely! I also love camping and having picnics anywhere that I can.

I am a communication arts major from Brockton, MA. My interests include listening to music, hanging out with friends, working out, and playing sports. I am a Clarendon Scholar and I am involved with the Office of Community Engagement serving as a College Bound Intern. I am also a member of the Gordon College Gospel Choir.
I have been an orientation leader for two years. I played the trumpet for eight years and every once in a while I play it just for fun. My favorite teams are the Patriots and the Red Sox.
