I have been a faculty member for several years at Aurora University, which has allowed me to do what I wanted to do most as a professor - teach.  I enjoy seeing students work hard and learn about social work so they can become professional social workers and make changes with individuals, couples, families and communities.  Due to the small class sizes, I get to know my students, which allows me to help them succeed at Aurora University.  

Ph.D. in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago
M.S.W. from The University of Michigan
B.A. in Psychology from The University of Michigan
