Prior to joining the Education faculty at Clemson University, I served as a public school teacher, fine arts administrator, instructional designer, consultant, small business owner, college administrator, adjunct professor of HRD, and regional director of doctoral programs in business. During the years I was in business I created some of the first OSHA compliance computer based training; developed the first free safety training site on the internet which trains over 10,000 people per week to this day… . As regional director for doctoral programs in Business for Nova Southeastern University, I was responsible for marketing, student advising, and directing dissertations. Currently I am the program coordinator for the Masters program in HRD, a small academic unit composed of two tenure track professors and adjuncts. My greatest challenge has been to redesign and modernize the curriculum, develop on-line courses and to insure that we support the vision for Clemson to one day become a top 20 doctoral granting research university.
