Welcome to the Geography Department at SUNY New Paltz. I am an Associate Professor of Geography, Chair of the Geography Department, and an active member of the Latin American and Caribbean Studies program on our campus. As Project Co-Director for a U.S. Department of Education Title 6 grant, I worked on faculty and curriculum development to enhance the teaching of Brazil and International Business Spanish on campus. I also served as Co-Chair of the Middle States Re-Accreditation Steering Committee. My publications include journal articles, book chapters, textbook units, and book reviews.
