Hello. Having been made aware of my book, perhaps you are wondering about the author. Well, let me introduce myself. For just over 28 years I worked in the world of higher education administration. During that time it was my privilege to meet, recruit, evaluate applications for, counsel, coach, and assist literally thousands of students in all stages of the graduate school process. 

My educational background includes a Bachelor's degree in Religion from Lancaster Bible College, a Master's degree in Communications from Wheaton College (IL), and a Ph.D in Higher Education Administration from Northwestern University. Education has truly changed my life. It has enabled me to grow intellectually, personally, interpersonally, professionally, and financially. It is because of the tremendous value I place on education, and a desire to help others accomplish their education goals and dreams, that I wrote Road Map for Graduate Study. Let me encourage you to pursue your educational dreams. You can do it. Anyone who decides s/he is going to earn a graduate degree can see that decision made a reality. Should you purchase and/or read my book please go to the Feedback page to provide feedback to me on what you thought of what you read. It would be great to hear from you. Enjoy browsing this website.

My best to you!!
