Contact Information

I earned my undergraduate degree in Education from The Defiance College in Defiance, Ohio and have an M.A. in Speech from Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, New Mexico. I taught and coached forensics at universities in New Mexico and Missouri before moving to Eau Claire in 1992.

I teach public speaking, listening, and pop culture classes and spend nearly every weekend during the school year at a forensics tournament. My true passion lies in helping students meet the goals that they set, and sometimes convincing students that they can aim even higher! 

When I am not teaching or traveling with the forensics team, I enjoy sewing, jewelry making, and spoiling my fur-baby, Buffy.
