About Me

I began teaching the department’s first online course (LAEP 1030) in 2008, and I have since developed and taught additional online courses for LAEP and the Plants, Soils and Climate department at USU. In addition to my teaching experience, I have worked professionally in the horticultural industry.

My MLA thesis involved a historical overview of the development and evolution of the indoor-outdoor relationship and developed a design toolset. Currently, I'm pursuing a doctorate in Instructional Technology & Learning Sciences at USU, where I'm developing pedagogical methods and instructional tools to teach landscape architectural design online.
