I had the classic Liberal Arts education, at Newberry College, in Newberry, South Carolina. I earned a B.A., with a double major in English and Sociology. I also took a number of classes in History, Religion, and Philosophy.
In January of 2002, I started teaching English and Creative Writing at The Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale. In July of 2007, I was promoted to Assistant Chair of General Education.
In December of 2009, my department chair was promoted to the open Associate Dean position, and I was appointed Interim Department Chair of General Education. In February 2010, I was promoted to Chair of General Education.
In October of 2016, I took a new job at City College's Hollywood, FL campus. I am the Director of Education, a position that's similar to a dean.
