M.A. English, University of Connecticut
B.A. Psychology, University of Connecticut
I have been a teacher, tutor, and advisor for many of the past twenty-five years. After earning a B.A. in psychology, I returned to school to become a certified English teacher and then earned an M.A. in English from the University of Connecticut, where I taught freshman composition and literature courses.
While my children were young, I worked as a freelance writer for a local parenting publication, and I have taught literature and composition at North Shore Community College for the past fourteen years.
The North Shore has been my home for twenty-one years, but I have lived in four different countries and three different states. I love to hike and run anywhere I have the chance”most recently hiking in Scotland and Iceland, and running a half marathon in London. I also like to read, garden, walk or run with friends or my border collie, and spend time with my husband and college-aged daughters.
In my teaching career, I have particularly enjoyed getting to know students and working with them individually. I am excited to be working as a learning consultant in the Student Support Center.
