  • Graduated from both Valencia Community College and University of Central Florida. Hold an M.A. in Political Science. Currently working on Ph.D. in Sociology

  • Classes I teach: U.S. Government, International Politics, State and Local Government, IDH III and IV, Introduction to Anthropology, and Government and the Media.

  • Adviser to West Campus Model United Nations (best group ever! :)

  • In my spare time I enjoy elections, spending time with friends and family, Liverpool FC, my three cats, learning, the Orlando Magic, City, and Pride, traveling, justice, The Tudors, coffee, Model UN, NPR, sweater weather, Lifetime Movie Channel, getting new books in the mail, and time off in the summer.

  • In my classes, you should find you have all the tools you need to succeed. I do my best to prepare students for exams, which are a major component of your class grade. You can expect a mix of instruction including, but not limited to, lecture, class discussion and group work.

  • Students are expected to come to class prepared by completing homework or study guides, reading the book, and bringing a desire to work hard. Students will find this class to be challenging, but the hard work will bring a greater satisfaction to your accomplishments.
