I have 2 college age children (son Trey and daughter Jordan) and one very spoiled rescue dog named Sam. Sam and I walk 3-5 miles a day. I have been in higher education full time since 2011, and before that owned 3 business including a printing company, photography studio, and sales training firm. I grew up in Indiana and much prefer the southern climate because I have 2 motorcycles (depending on my mood and because one is never enough) which is my primary hobby. I enjoy online because it allows so many more people to access education, yet I do sometimes miss that spirited live discussion of strategy in the classroom. I am thrilled to be at Columbia College because it is so well positioned geographically and culturally to take advantage of the explosion in online education.
