I am Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of West Georgia. I love being on a university campus, and teaching and learning about life, attitudes, behavior, and much more.
I hold a Ph.D. in sociology from Kent State University, a Master of Arts in sociology from Ohio University, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Dayton.
My research and teaching interests include social psychology, deviant behavior, emotions, subculture, mental health, and both qualitative & quantitative research methods. My research experience has mainly consisted of collecting primary data using participant observation, interviews, and cultural surveying techniques.
