Currently, I am serving in my eleventh year as instructor for the Physical Education Teacher Education program. Because of my previous experiences, I am prepared to teach a wide variety of courses across the PETE curriculum. For the past five years, I have served as faculty advisor for the PETE major's club. The club has been very active in IAHPERD, SHAPE Up IL and across the campus community. Previously, I served as professor, women's basketball coach and Director of Athletics at nearby Eureka College where I was recognized as Professor Emeritus. For leisure I enjoy golfing, gardening, playing guitar and riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle. I am a member of SHAPE, IAHPERD, the JWP Audubon Society, Arbor Day Society and VFW Auxillary.
