Mechanical Engineering

My undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree is in Mechanical Engineering, which I received in December, 1983, from The Pennsylvania State University. (I can provide a copy of my diploma upon request.) I also passed my EIT exam certification prior to graduating from college (which I also can provide a copy of upon request). After graduating from college, I worked for an engineering consulting firm for four years as a mechanical engineer performing load calculations, computer simulations and other engineering duties as required.


Nutrition

My graduate level Master of Education degree is in Secondary Education, which I received in May, 1996, from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. Prior to earning my Master's degree, I was a Public Health major and earned 33 graduate credits in health and nutrition. (I can provide a copy of my diploma/transcript upon request.) I also passed my Public Health Comprehensive Exams prior to changing my major to Secondary Education. During and after graduating from graduate school, I served as an outreach volunteer for several non-profit organizations devoted to disease prevention through the promotion of health and nutrition education and outreach to the general public. In 2009, my work of designing a course to promote healthy diets among adolescents at the high school level was recognized and published in a nationally circulated publication.
