Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine


I am an Assistant Professor at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine in Rochester, Michigan. I teach histology and gross cadaveric anatomy to medical students, and I am Co-Director of the Male and Female Reproductive Systems course.  I am a medical education researcher, with a focus on histology education, curriculum integration, online education and K-12 science outreach. I evaluate educational innovations in these areas through a broad range of research approaches (qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods). 

I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Anatomy from The University of Western Ontario in the laboratory of Dr. Kem Rogers. My doctoral thesis involved the design, implementation, and evaluation of a fully online anatomy course with a laboratory component. While at The University of Western Ontario, I lectured in an undergraduate histology course and led microscopy laboratory sessions in both traditional and online formats. My skills in cadaveric dissection were honed through graduate teaching assistantships at both The University of Western Ontario and Queen's University and while working as an Anatomy Laboratory Technician at the University of Guelph. I have also taught gross anatomy at the University of Guelph-Humber and Humber College

I have a special interest in professional development in higher education, serving on the AAA's Professional Development Committee and as Vice President of Oakland University's Women's Employee Resource Group.
