Teaching/Learning & Technology
I am a sponsor of the Jackson-Via Computer Club at Jackson-Via Elementary School in Charlottesville, Virginia.
I served until June 2013 as the webmaster for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Virginia, a foundation that brings together seniors from various backgrounds who share a common interest in learning and intellectual stimulation, and I am currently a JABA-Senior Corps-RSVP volunteer participating in the FISH program in Charlottesville.

Judson College ~ Marion, Alabama ~ 1995-2006
I was the site manager/ trainer for our course management system, and I redesigned courses to include web content and interactivity for maximum effectiveness. For the Science Division, I redesigned my Biochemical Nutrition course as a blended (hybrid) course.
