"I specialize in Colonial American History, American Women, and the History of Crime and Punishment. At Mount Mary, I have taught the Survey of Early American History and World Regional Geography. I enjoy enlightening students about facts they think they know, but have much more to learn. Working with all females has really allowed me to delve into topics that are interesting to me and the students. Getting to introduce such a wide range of topics has taught my students and myself very important lessons. The history program at Mount Mary has allowed me to explore topics that interest everyone, while allowing students to explore the world through history. In many ways, this program helps to bring these topics, which many students enter not excited to learn, to life and to make it relevant to modern life."
