University of Evansville
Originally from Evansville, Indiana, I attended the University of Evansville where I was a member of the women’s golf team. While working on my undergraduate degree in Sports Studies, I also earned a private pilot’s license.
After graduation I elected to complete my graduate studies at Indiana University-Bloomington. I completed two Master of Science degrees in Sport Administration and Higher Education Administration, and a Doctor of Philosophy with a concentration in Sport Management at IU. My dissertation, a History of Women’s Athletics at Indiana University was funded by the Ruth Engs Doctoral Research Grant and the Texas A & M Diversity in Sport Dissertation Grant.
After my 30th winter in southern Indiana, I was ready to head south to the sunny state of Florida. I accepted a position as an Assistant Professor of Sport Management at Jacksonville University in 2009. From 2010-2012, I served as the Chair of the Department of Sport and Exercise Science. After three years at JU, I was ready for new challenges. Fortunately I didn’t have to go far to find the ideal situation for my personal and professional growth at UNF. I'm excited to be a part of such a strong university community.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, my two dogs, cycling, running, exploring new places, and gardening. I have an older sister, Vanessa, who is an Assistant Professor Medicine and Director of Obstetrics at the University of Virginia. My younger brother Jay is a realtor in Evansville. I also have a seven year old niece, Sonia.
