I am an Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Lakeland College (www.lakeland.edu) in Sheboygan, WI. I teach General Chemistry and advanced courses in the Chemistry and Biochemistry curriculum. In 2008, I began using Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) in the General Chemistry courses that I teach. In addition, I have mentored undergraduate research with students at Lakeland College through the Lakeland Undergraduate Research Experience program, which I co-founded. Several of my students have presented their research at regional and national gatherings, including American Chemical Society Meetings and at The Argonne National Laboratory Undergraduate Symposium. I am also the director of the Lakeland College Science and Engineering Fair, which accepts science fair projects from middle school and high school students from the Northeastern Region of Wisconsin.
