I have served at Lone Star College since 2002. In addition to my primary assignment as a classroom instructor, I have been the Phi Theta Kappa Advisor since 2003. I have served on numerous college and system-wide committees, worked as the Foundations of Excellence co-liaison (2011-2012), and served as Interim Dean for Faculties of English and Mathematics Spring 2011.
