I am thrilled to be the CHP’s Senior Honors Advisor and consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to work with the best students on campus!

As the saying goes, once an anteater, always an anteater… I graduated from UCI with a degree in English in spring 1999. In addition to participating in the CHP and the Humanities Honors Program, I was an editor for the New University Newspaper, a SPOP staffer, and a Mesa Court RA.

During my 10 years away from UCI, I taught English in Hungary and attended graduate school at Columbia University in New York City. I have also worked at Barnard College, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and CSU Long Beach.

I enjoy books, movies, travel, trivia, teaching, dogs, good food and drink (mmm…coffee), and spending time with my twin nieces and nephew. I also love learning about almost anything and anyone. I look forward to connecting with CHP students and reconnecting with alumni! Stop by the office or drop me a line any time and let me know what’s new with you.
