About Me
I'm a two-time Mule and I'm happy I was able to return and teach at UCM. I'm excited about teaching the general education courses I'm involved in. The courses teach students valuable, transferable skills that will serve them all their life, regardless of their job or volunteer work. I've been adopted by a few stray cats, I play the violin (now and then), I knit (slowly), run several 5K races a year (also slowly), and I think "The Mary Tyler Moore" show was one of the best series to ever air on TV.
