Full Bio

Over her career she has influenced literally thousands of students to delve into literature so that they could learn the importance of stories -- their own and others. She challenged her students to explore and understand their own story. She spent 20+ years as a member of the Integrated Studies Committee at the college fighting for this kind of learning community for students. For twelve years, she has taught integrated studies courses with a myriad of faculty and disciplines.
