Assistant Professor
Adult-Gero Primary Care Track Program Coordinator

My teaching philosophy centers on the concept of Learner-Centered Education. I use frequent low stake assessments to evaluate the unique needs of all learners in my classroom. I use these assessments to modify weekly course curriculum to re-address areas needing deeper understanding while allowing for the spirit of inquiry.
