"I think I was fated to be a history professor. I have been interested in the past ever since I read Treasure Island as a child. Indeed, I wanted to be a pirate long before I knew there was an East Carolina University. Reading history and teaching history are my passions!! I am excited to be starting another chapter in my teaching career at Chowan University."
