I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Economics, with a minor in Geography, from BGSU in 2002 and subsequently earned my Master of Arts in Economics from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. I started teaching at BGSU in 2007, focusing mainly on introductory economics classes but also some upper division classes, including Labor Economics (Econ 3210) and Behavioral Economics (Econ 3050). I have always focused on improving my skills as an educator, working on my professional development through economics teaching conferences, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and various college task forces and committees. Beyond the classroom, I apply my academic training to various pursuits such as economic consulting and local nonprofits. I have won the Schmidthorst College of Business  Alumni Undergraduate Teaching Award twice, in 2012 and in 2021, along with the Leadership Council Faculty Excellence Award in Teaching in 2019.
