I received my Ph. D. in August 2012 from the University of Georgia. I am so excited to begin my second semester at Mercer University!
My main interests are geometry, analysis, and mathematics teaching. I am also interested in teacher education. I wrote my dissertation on the geometry of sets of positive reach.
I am currently teaching MAT 191 (Calculus I) and MAT 293 (Calculus III). Last semester, I taught MAT 191 and MAT 330 (Differential Equations).

I enjoy cooking, reading, making jewelry, working out, and drinking coffee. I have an orange tabby cat and a lab mix shelter dog. I am hooked on Pinterest.
