As an Emeritus Professor of Community Psychology in the Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington Bothell (UWB), I created this site as a way to continue my teaching, research, and service. My professional training and experience are in the fields of multicultural education and psychology.
As a graduate assistant, I taught in one of the first diversity programs in the country. As a professor, I taught in a program for academically promising students called the Goodrich Scholarship Program at the University of Nebraska at Omaha for 27 years, and helped create the Community Psychology major at UWB. I have been an advocate for equal educational opportunity, social justice and diversity in higher education throughout my career.
Retirement has given me more time to engage with activities that my work life curtailed. I am a writer, voracious reader, tutor, and Tostan volunteer, and I love spending time with my family and friends, cooking and hiking together whenever possible.
I am excited to share my newest endeavor, a book of short stories designed to help people, especially women, fall asleep.
