My life passion is to learn — to progress academically, personally, and spiritually and to share that adventure with others. This can happen while I’m researching, teaching, drinking coffee or taking in the sights, smells, and sounds of Lake Michigan. As a life-long-learner, I encourage my students to risk — even failure — to discover their voice and their passion.
