"I became a part of the Coker College family in 1993 as an adjunct professor teaching at the Fort Jackson campus. In 2000, I was hired as a visiting professor to help start the Bachelor of Social Work program and help move it forward to full accreditation. I am passionate about meeting my former students who have joined the ranks of my current colleagues."
