ABOUT

I continue to teach several sections of a Hybrid Alcohol and Other Drugs course at UWW. I have a Master's degree in Counseling and I am a licensed Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker through the State of Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing. I also work for HP Enterprise Services as a Utilization Review Specialist. This involves adjudicating requests for Substance Abuse treatment and Mental Health Services for members of the Wisconsin Medicaid Program (aka BadgerCare).

I am married and my wife and I have four great cats and a horse. I love riding my bike on the great trails in and around Madison and the great state of Wisconsin. It continues to be a great honor for me to be involved in teaching and interacting with students on this campus and being part of The Department of Occupational & Environmental Safety & Health. It is all about teaching people how to live well and safely in work and in play.

PROFESSIONAL INTERESTS

I am continuing to keep track of student's drinking behaviors and using class room interventions to decrease risk in students high risk behavior with drinking. I have been working on establishing trends in drinking behavior on UWW campus since 1998. I hope to establish significant reductions in drinking from beginning to end of class period by using a research based personal risk assessment. So far the results are encouraging.
