"Hello! Welcome to my webpage. I have taught at Dalton State College since August of 2004. It's a great place to work. I have been teaching at the college level since 1978. I am the editor of the Journal for Academic Excellence, faculty sponsor for the Baptist Collegiate Ministries, and President of the Georgia Communication.

My original home was Prince George's County, Maryland. I came to college in the Chattanooga area and liked it so much that I never left. I currently live in Ringgold with my husband, David, and we have a son, Paul. My research interests are adult learning, online course development, the basic public speaking course, business communication, rhetorical practices in the history of United States politics, and the relationship of religion to political discourse. I am also very interested in composition studies, fiction writing, film studies, and literature. I have published five novels and also write plays. I have been able to travel to Europe five times and recently took my first trip to New England and also recently stuck my feet in the Pacific Ocean for the first time. Please feel free to email me and come see me in my office in Westcott."

If you are looking for Course Materials, announcements, etc., go to GeorgiaVIEW and find your course. You can do so by clicking on the GeorgiaVIEW icon at the top of the college's web page, logging in with the same username and password you use for campus email, and then finding the link to the course I am teaching. We will use GEORGIAVIEW a great deal, so go ahead and explore.

I commend you for making Dalton State College your higher education choice.
