Adjunct Professor, Political Science

I’ve been a part-time faculty member at Monmouth since 2000 and work as a political, governmental relations and public policy consultant I chose to work in government and politics because I still believe in the power of government to make a positive impact on people’s lives.

Monmouth is special to me because of the opportunity to get to know the students on a one-on-one basis. I’m especially pleased when former students let me know their experience at Monmouth was critical to their career successes.

I also host a radio show and podcast on several public radio stations in the Midwest, Heartland Politics.
