B.A. Beloit College, Cultural Anthropology and Spanish Language and Literature, 1984
Western New York is where I grew up, but once I came out west for graduate school, that was it. I was home. Colorado and Arizona have been my home areas ever since. Today, I live in Bayfield, Colorado, about 20 miles east of Durango. My husband and I are river runners, hikers, and cross-country skiers, so Colorado’s Western Slope is an ideal place to call home!
In graduate school, where I earned an MA in Cultural Anthropology, I discovered my love for teaching. I’ve taught ESOL, ABE/GED, community college, undergraduate and graduate level. Along the way, I also discovered (or perhaps uncovered) my love for writing, which eventually I turned toward grant writing. I’m excited to be here today at Western, applying all my previous skills, knowledge and experience!
