I am a proud mom of five and grandmother of nine who has taught Pre-AP English 9, Regents English 10 and 11 in Webster, NY. I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate from Buffalo State College, where I also earned my Master of Arts degree in English Literature. I studied Theatre at Thames Valley University in London as part of a summer exchange program. I am currently an associate of the Joseph Campbell Foundation as his work has had a tremendous influence on me. I served as a presenter at the 2012 Symposium on Mythology in Santa Barbara, CA and as Programs Director for the Celebrating the Mythical Life conference held in New Paltz, NY commemorating the 50 year passing of Joseph Campbell.
