Major career accomplishments:

I have taught in higher education for more than 21 years in a combination of adjunct and full time positions in the area of communication. For five years, I led the public relations department at Taylor University, overseeing the alumni magazine, the website, media relations, summer conferences and special events, as well as community relations. I’ve served on several community boards and now serve with REST Ministries in Martinsville, Indiana.

I recently finished a short, unpublished fiction book, The Auction, that I hope to sell on Amazon as an ebook soon.
