Research and Personal Interests:
I currently have no research appointment.  I am interested in bicycling, tennis, and going to Pirate Athletic Events.  I also sing in the Choir at St. James United Methodist Church.

Awards won and who awarded them to you:
I would rather talk about the FAR role than awards.  I became the FAR at ECU in 2003.  As the FAR, I work in the athletic department but not for the athletic department.  I work for the Chancellor, Provost, and faculty and am paid by academic affairs.  I serve as bridge between the academic side of campus and the athletic side.  I help coaches and student-athletes to understand what faculty are thinking and doing.  I help faculty members understand what coaches and student-athletes are thinking and doing.  I am primarily interested in three things: academic integrity, rules compliance, and welfare of student-athletes.  My work assignment at ECU is teaching half-time (two courses) and FAR duties half-time.  I very much enjoy both aspects of my job.

What City, State, or Country are you originally from?
Marietta, Georgia

Something interesting about yourself?
I lived in Fargo, ND for 7 years, while teaching at North Dakota State University.  I had just gotten tenured and promoted at NDSU when I came to ECU and had to get tenure again and go through the process a third time when I got promoted to full professor.  I am starting my 24th year at ECU and my 31st year of university teaching.  I have loved every minute of it.
