 Welcome Students!

What an exciting time to study Sociology in context of the world around us. Understanding our society, and the mutual impact shared, is key to developing our own style of leadership, character and perspective in life.

I look forward to meeting with each of you and discussing your view of the world while adding some of the fundamentals of sociology to your understanding. I welcome your emails in request of guidance, advice or simply an exchange of ideas to begin our connection in support of your journey towards leadership and excellence.

Teaching Style

It is my mission to make learning fun, interactive and memorable. As a lifelong learner, I am constantly exploring new ways to promote retention and engagement.  The focus of my classes is to help the students share their understanding of the theories and concepts covered and how the theories relate to the world around them through photos and real-life experiences.

I love to laugh and being a visual learner, I tend to incorporate a plethora of photos and short media clips.


Being a student for most of my life, I have earned the following degrees, while ultimately being inducted as a lifetime member of the International Sociology Honor Society (Alpha Kappa Delta). I still dream of pursuing a doctoral degree as my next goal.

Educating professionals and advocating for underrepresented populations within the community since 2001 in a variety of fields, I have passionately worked to master the art of teaching in a way that promotes the ability to retain knowledge. Educating and advocating has been my passion and has also been embraced as my purpose.

Other Campuses where I teach:

Educating those who are eager to learn has been my passion and has also been embraced as my purpose.

Take your textbook everywhere you go without having an actual book.  All of the textbooks
used in my classes can be purchased as an electronic textbook that can be
viewed from any computer or digital device (via the vital source app).
