Biography

I graduated from the Medical Record Administration program at Illinois State University in 1986. I subsequently worked in the Cancer Registry/Cancer Program Management area for the next few years in the Bloomington/Normal and Dallas areas. While in Dallas, I started working in Oncology Clinical Research. I returned to the Bloomington/Normal area and continued my career in Oncology Clinical Research. Since 1993, I have taught at Illinois State University in the Health Sciences Department, part time for 19 years and then full time for the last 2.
