Professor “NJP” studies the intersection of environment, culture, and technology, including such diverse applications as watersheds, railroads and military history, visual literacy, and informal learning environments. She fosters collaborations across disciples, especially geography and public health. She cultivated the partnerships resulting in the launch of CWU’s interdisciplinary Accessibility Studies Program which she now directs. She also teaches educational foundations and has published on such topics as professional dispositions, online engagement, assessment and quantitative research methods. Her favorite quote:

“They don’t care how much you know
until they know how much you care.”
