I have been teaching biology at Dixie State University since Fall 1993. In addition to teaching at least a dozen different biology courses as well as medical terminology during my time here, I served as Chair of the Natural Sciences Department from July 2002 until July 2007. When the Natural Sciences Department was split into the Department of Biology and the Department of Physical Sciences, I then served as Chair of the Biology Department and Associate Dean of Science from July 2007 until July 2011. At the current time, I have no administrative duties and am teaching 14 – 17 credits per semester.
