I graduated from Miami University (Ohio) with a major in English and I earned my M.Ed. in English from Kent. I taught high school English for eight years at Solon High School, then taught English 10001 and 10002 as a part-timer at Kent. I began working in the Honors College in 1990. My favorite activities are reading, travel, and spending time with my four wonderful grandchildren. I am especially interested in talking with Honors students about the benefits of studying abroad.
