I grew up between Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., and moved to Arizona when I was 17 years old. Except for the two years that I spent in Washington, D.C., to complete my coursework for a Ph.D. in English at George Washington University, I have lived in Arizona. I have worked for the Maricopa County Community College District and at Estrella Mountain Community College for 22 years, teaching as a Residential English Faculty member for 16 of those years. Now, as Dean of Instruction at Scottsdale Community College, I take every opportunity to be an Adjunct English Faculty member and teach online at EMCC. Currently, I live in North Phoenix with my daughter, Olivia, and our dog, Abby.
