Dear Students, alumni, faculty, and friends of the Online Master of Science in Food Safety program:

It is with mixed emotions that I share with you that I will be resigning as the Director of the Master of Science in Food Safety degree program as of June 30, 2014.  I will be assuming the position of Associate Dean of Professional Academic Programs and Student Services in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University.  Although I am extremely excited about this new opportunity, I will miss my home with the MS in Food Safety family.

It has been a gift to me to work in this program.  The MS in Food Safety program is a recognized leader in food safety education.  This is attributable to the students, alumni, faculty and staff who are second to none! 

Transition plans for a Director for the MS in Food Safety program are underway and will be announced soon.  I look forward to watching the program reach new heights!  I am certain the program will continue to exceed expectations.

Thank you again for the gift you all have given to me by allowing me to work with you.
