I began teaching at College of DuPage in 1997.  As a student at Luther College, I was encouraged to take a College Success Skills course to refine my study skills.  At the time, I did not think I needed it.  Soon after enrolling in the course, I realized the benefit.  Quite frankly, it helped me to become a better student.  Today, I draw from my experience as a student to develop my approach to teaching a very similar course at College of DuPage - Education 1115.  I have the expectation that students enroll in this class for different reasons.  However, most students finish the course finding that they learned much more than they anticipated.  Currently, I serve as Coordinator for Education 1115 at College of DuPage.  You may also see me at New Student Orientation during the summer where I make presentations to help new students acclimate to college.   

Professionally, I have more than 15 years of experience in training and development, drawing on my experience in the fields of social work, health care, and education.  In addition to my work at COD, I provide results-oriented training for corporations, healthcare organizations and numerous professional groups. I have presented and taught more than twenty-five topics related to emotional and physical health including biofeedback, stress management, relaxation techniques, coping with anxiety and panic, anger management, and assertiveness.  In my career, I have had the opportunity to teach at eight local colleges. 

I earned a Master of Arts degree in Adult Education from National-Louis University and am certified by the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America (BCIA).  In general, I am a high energy person.  I enjoy sports and staying active.  I am learning how to play golf.  However, if you have seen me play you will know why I keep my sense of humor.  I reside with my wife and cats in Montgomery, Illinois.
