I have been at the University of North Alabama since 2008, and the Faculty adviser for the SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma chapters here is about 2010. In that time we have received two notable chapter awards and one Outstanding Chapter awards. I have also encouraged students to apply for SPS scholarships and grants. We have received several SOCKS kits and one research grant to observe meteor impacts on the Moon. I run the UNA Planetarium, and as such believe strongly in outreach, and the SPS has participated in activities such as tables for First Fridays street festivals and Earth day. My research involves studying binary and variable stars, and I involve students in that research. My students have won state and national poster competitions, for which I am proud.
