My research interests include rural community development, specifically in Appalachia, and the use of GIS to enhance development initiatives. I am also interested in historical and cultural evolutions in cartography, and the use of maps to communicate complex data.
My teaching credentials include Intro to Geography, Geography of the US and Canada, World Regional Geography, Advanced Cartography, Database Developer's Series (MS Access), the Microsoft Office suite, and various other software applications. I have written and delivered curricula to audiences from college students to busy professionals to retirees, and enjoy helping organizations realize their full potential through capacity building processes.
