Academic Biography

I am the former attorney for Penn State University at main campus. I also served as attorney for Lincoln University, and Cheyney University. I taught part-time at Penn State and full time at Valley Forge Military College and Cabrini College. I served at DCCC as the Dean of Public Services and Social Science for 11 years and was the former Director for the Center for Paralegal Studies. I have also served as an esteemed member of the Board of Trustees at Cabrini University. Students today have different challenges than I had in college. No more travelling to libraries and other sources to figure out how or where to do research. Now there is the more troubling task of assessing the most significant materials and their credibility. My goal at this point in my career is to champion for students a good work ethic, meaningful discourse, useful time management and steady preparation for the challenges ahead.

Theoretical Approach, Experience, and Temperament

Students are currently learning that there are an unfathomable number of opportunities and resources here at DCCC. With all that is going on not only in the class room, but with improvements being made at the college, it is difficult to take it all in. But careful consideration, thoughtful planning, and a fierce work ethic are the hallmarks to our student success stories. As faculty, I am enthused by the buzz I hear in the hallways with students discussing, collaborating and encouraging one another in their courses and to complete their journeys everyday.

Scholarly Interests

  • Ethics, Crime, Law and Deviance are my "favorite" subjects. I am a past Managing Editor for the American Sociological Associations, Crime,Law and Deviance Section Newsletter 2012-2013. I continue to seek various and new ways to dispense the law and legal info. I have written and contributed numerous articles to various legal publications and newspapers. I remain a Contributing Editor to American Jurisprudence, a legal encyclopedia.
