I am a retired Professor Emeritus in the Department of Math and past Interim Director of Distance Education at Youngstown State University. I am still very actively involved in teaching and serve currently as an adjunct faculty member for ERAU. I have also been an adjunct for other online colleges since 2003.

I have a Ph.D. in Mathematics with a dual concentration in Numerical Analysis and Mathematics Educational Technology.

I have served on the multimedia advisory boards for two major publishing companies: Pearson Education and McGraw-Hill and am a faculty advisor for Cengage. I am past President of one of International Society Technology in Education's ISTE's special interest groups: SIGTC for Technology Coordinators. I have also been appointed to the MAPLE Academic Advisory Board. While Interim DE Director at YSU I was appointed to serve as co-chair of Ohio’s Distance Education Advisory Group and asked to be on the Chancellor's Program Sharing Committee. I have been developing and teaching courses since 2002 and, in addition to my degrees, hold certificates in Instructional Design and Facilitation as well as Strategic Planning and Management. I am also co-author with my husband for the 10th edition of Numerical Analysis.

In my spare time, I am a competitive ballroom dancer. I compete Pro/Am at some of the largest competitions in the US and Canada with my instructors ranking in the top 3 in all American and International styles in my division.
