I have a Bachelor of University Studies degree from the University of Albuquerque. My major fields were history and French. After I graduated from college, I studied Japanese for many years at the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos, Santa Fe Community College, and with several private tutors. I completed English as a Second Language Training with Literacy Volunteers of America in 1993. Since then, I have done private ESL tutoring in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Denver, Colorado. I volunteered for three years in the ESL program at the Emily Griffith Opportunity School in Denver, Colorado. I taught English in 1995 in the towns of Nakamura and Sukumo, Kochi ken, Japan. In 1987, I was a clerk in the office of the governor of New Mexico. I also completed a Microcomputer Management course at Parks College, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and a travel agent's course at SST Travel School, Inc., Phoenix, Arizona.
