Teaching Philosophy
My teaching philosophy centers around influencing active learning and enforces critical thinking. The driving force that motivates my teaching philosophy is learning through active student participation. I believes the transfer of knowledge through active participation is knowledge parted and student knowledge retained.

Giving Back
Since retiring from military service, I have worked in higher education and developmental training. I have dedicated a significant portion of my time towards mentoring and expanding diversity and educational opportunities for undeserved minorities in the healthcare and STEM professions. I also enjoy motivational speaking and the influences of Inspirational Leadership.
