I joined the Shippensburg faculty in 1998 with interests in applied mapping. I love Geography and mapping is a wonderful way to express the patterns and processes of the environment. While my traditional training and focus of research is in interactive multimedia, animated mapping and its application in education, I enjoy using current software to explore a range of cultural landscapes. I teach a variety of courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, including GIS, Cartography, Mapping Science, World Regional Geography, and the Geography of the United States and Canada. I have held several mapping and GIS positions where I created maps and conducted spatial analysis for both private and government agencies. This work experience is discussed in the technical courses to update students on their career options. I promote active learning styles and stresses the importance of technology in the classroom to strengthen students’ potential success in the ever-changing work place.
