Two books she is currently exploring are: A Creative Approach to Teaching Grammar (Peter Burrows) and Teach Like a Pirate (Dave Burgess).

As a marketing communications director, she has written speeches for the CEOs of some of America’s most visible companies. Her concern for the environment has led to the writing of dozens of op-ed pieces, letters to the editor, web site articles, and legal briefs. Most of all, though, she enjoys essay and research writing, which is what she presently teaches to students.
