I grew up in the rural town of Hambleton, West Virginia with a population of less than three hundred people. After graduating from high school, I went to Fairmont State College where I received my B.S. in chemistry. My graduate work was performed at West Virginia University (GO MOUNTAINEERS!). I started my postdoctoral work at Mississippi State University and later moved back to WVU as an instrument manager. My first full-time teaching job was at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I came to Dalton State College in August 2005, where I currently teach general chemistry, organic chemistry, survey of chemistry, and biochemistry. My research interests are in the area of synthetic organic chemistry and biodiesel production.
