I think of myself as a writing coach. I like to help students develop their skills and confidence. The students do the writing, and I act as an editor.

As department chair, I work with students, faculty, and staff to ensure the best possible learning environment in TigerLand. I led the 20 person faculty in an undergraduate degree redesign that will allow students both flexibility and options to tailor their learning experience to the 21st-century careers they seek. Our students graduate students place with top employers in Harris county and around the world. Many continue to study with top universities throughout the country.
