Welcome to my Ithaca College homepage! I entered Ithaca College in 1986 as a Music Education major; I graduated in 1990 with a Bachelors in English Literature (with a concentration in Renaissance Studies) and a Writing Minor. I came back to IC to teach two sections of Intro to Literature for the English Department in 1999. Currently, I'm teaching Academic Writing and Writing for the Workplace courses for the Writing Department.

I have also collaborated with Ithaca College's First-Year Seminar program to research possible solutions for on-line collaboration and communication ... specifically using Ithaca College's new learning management software (LMS), Sakai.

I work full-time at Cornell University as a Project Manager/Instructional Designer in the department of Academic Technologies. I have been teaching in higher education since 1993 ... at: Ithaca College, Binghamton University, SUNY Cortland, Empire State College, and Tompkins Cortland Community College. I've been teaching on-line courses since 1998 through Tompkins Cortland Community College and the SUNY Learning Network.
