I was in the packaging industry for 32 years, and academic year 2016-17 is my twelfth year teaching at Clemson. I teach the freshstudent and sophomore courses in Packaging Science; I'm the primary contact for students and parents interested in our B.S. program, and I conduct our Summer Orientation sessions for incoming students and their parents. I'm the faculty mentor for the student Packaging Science Club. And I help create student connections and interactions with companies in the packaging industry.
