Fun Times

I thought my story might be good news. I graduated from UNT with a bachelor's in recreation management, with an emphasis in therapeutic recreation.

I went on to grad school at Indiana University and got my master's and Ph.D. in human performance. I retired from Indiana State University as a full professor in 2023 after 26 years. I was the director of the recreational therapy program and outdoor center.

I use a wheelchair full time and lived in Crumley Hall in one of the accessible rooms. I have so many fond memories of living on campus and the Denton community. I was also a DJ on KNTU for two years working the night shift, 8 p.m. to midnight, and then shutting down the station for the night. I had the "Crumley Singers" come in and sing Christmas carols twice on my live mic. Lots of fun.
