    Professor/Coordinator of Administrative Office Technology

    I began working at the College in 1982 as the Division Secretary for the Academic Division of Business. During the next 15 years, I worked my way up the ranks with the office. During my time at OCCC, I completed my A.A.S. in Secretarial Science at OCCC (1985), my B.S. in Liberal Studies/Office Administration (1994) and my M.Ed. in General Education/Business-Marketing (1997) from the University of Central Oklahoma. I also taught as an Adjunct Professor at OCCC. My full-time teaching career began 1997. My main program is Administrative Office Technology, but I've also taught classes in the Business program. Once the Success classes began, I began teaching those courses as well. I love working at OCCC - it is a great institution that is focused on student success.
