From: Kempton, Indiana
Background: I received my Bachelor of Science in Education with a focus in Elementary Education and Special Education AND my Master of Science in Education with a focus in Adult Education both from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN. I taught elementary / special education for 5 years and then began working in higher education at Indiana University, Kokomo, IN as an Academic Advisor in the School of Education and General Studies.
