This year is my 9th year at Mill Creek teaching British literature and writing. My favorite writers are Shakespeare and the Romantic poets. I have also taught literature and composition at North Georgia College and Georgia Gwinnett College. Originally from Montana, I have lived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Seattle, Washington. I earned my B.A from the University of Montana and my M.A.T in Secondary English from Agnes Scott College. My daughter, Gabi, graduated from Mill Creek and attends the University of Montana where she is studying marketing and communication. In my personal time, I endurance train for an Ironman triathlon, and have raced at Ironman Canada twice, Ironman Hawaii, Ironman Coeur d'Alene, and Ironman Wales.
