I was raised in upstate New York (the Clifton Park/Saratoga Springs area), and then attended SUNY New Paltz (one and a half hours north of NYC) for my Bachelor of Arts.

I had two majors: Sociology and Psychology. I worked in Human Services as a Residential Counselor for several years, but decided that I wanted to attend graduate school 'out west.' After almost four years of 'getting residency' and living in Breckenridge, I decided on CSU.

In December 1998, I earned a Master of Arts in Sociology with an emphasis in Race/Ethnicity. I worked as adjunct faculty at FRCC, and then was hired at UNC as a Lecturer. I was at UNC for a year, but then came to Aims in Fall 2001! I am very happy at Aims and particularly enjoy teaching (and learning) with the students here.

On a personal note, I live in Fort Collins with my daughter, Annika, and Rottweiler-mix, Sophia. I enjoy exploring the world, particularly with my daughter, reading, and I am an avid runner, backpacker and telemark skier.

Fun Fact: I drink three fluids- coffee/lattes, red wine, and water.
