  • Ph.D., Statistics, Baylor University


One of the first things that attracted me to statistics was its applicability to many different fields of study. During my first graduate statistics course I became intrigued by the opportunity that a statistician has to learn about other topics while applying statistical methods to solve real-world problems.

I began my educational career earning a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science degree in mathematics. After teaching for two years in the mathematics department at Baylor, I earned my doctorate degree in statistics from Baylor and joined the department of statistical science as a lecturer. Teaching is my first love and I thoroughly enjoy working with the graduate teaching assistants. I am also fortunate to work with graduate students from other departments and learn more about their areas of interest.

Personally my husband, Jodi, and I have been blessed with four beautiful daughters. In addition to playing with my girls, I enjoy exercising, learning about health and nutrition, reading, and scrap booking.
