Greetings! Originally, I’m from southeast Wisconsin, which is known for its green fields, delicious cheese, cold weather, and warm people. That is where my interest in other languages and cultures began. I studied Japanese intensively for three years at UW-Whitewater before partaking in a study abroad to the Kansai region of Japan. I returned in 2003 to graduate with a BA in English Literature. Soon after, my career in teaching began in Madison, Wisconsin, where I got certified to teach ESL/EFL to non-native speakers.  Since that time I have taught English conversation in Japan through the JET Program, English composition to students attending the University of Arizona, and everything in between at the Center for English as a Second Language (CESL). Presently, I am the coordinator of their Evening Program, so if you’re interested in observing classes of language learners, I welcome you!  My research interests include discourse analysis and Japanese-English socio-linguistics.  Personally, I enjoy golf, mountain climbing, and collecting wine.  I look forward to spending time with all of you in this fantastic program!
