"Personally, I enjoy reading, running, and spending time with my family. I have run 58 marathons and 55 ultra-marathons (seven of which were over 100 miles). I travel when I can and participated on a mission team in Guatemala for the past two years through the First United Methodist Church where I am an active member of the Mission Committee.
The Mathematics Department is one of about half a dozen in the country who use the curriculum we have adopted (in fact, department members have helped write the curriculum).
