A life-long student, I find joy in sharing my love of learning with others. My B.A. was in Technical Theater (design and stage managing) with minors in English and History. My M.A. focused solely on Southwest History, particularly New Mexico History, with a minor in Anthropolgy in the same area.

I've taught or tutored elementary, middle and high school students as well as non-credit, college level courses. I also worked in marketing/public relations, law, and magzine publishing, so my experience with the written word is fairly broad and real-world oriented.

My greatest reward? When I was told by two different students that they had never liked history until they took my class, that they were going to begin reading history on their own.
