About Me

I became Westminster College’s 15th president on July 1, 2016.

Before coming to Westminster College, I was provost and professor of communication at Berry College, Mt. Berry, Georgia. I served as the chief academic officer, which included responsibility for working with six deans to coordinate management of the four academic schools and division of nursing and providing oversight to some 250 faculty and academic staff.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Religion/Philosophy, summa cum laude, from Shorter College, a master’s degree in journalism and a doctorate in mass communication from the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. I completed additional graduate coursework in communication at the University of Oklahoma.
