I arrived at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in September 2003, after spending 7 years in Chapel Hill completing an MA and PhD in United States history at the University of North Carolina.  But I spent my formative years in southern Indiana, so I am a midwesterner by birth and upbringing!  I was a history major at Hanover College (perched on the banks of the Ohio River, between Louisville and Cincinnati), and I try to bring as much of the liberal arts college into my classroom as I can.

In addition to teaching courses on early American history, I teach environmental history and environmental humanities.  I am also Editor-in-Chief of Voyageur: Northeast Wisconsin’s Historical Review.  I currently co-direct the statewide Wisconsin Teaching Fellows & Scholars program.

If you would like to contact me, you can find my contact information at my UWGB faculty webpage.
