I've taught Anatomy and Physiology and Pathophysiology at Alverno College since 1986. My major focus is educating nursing students, and my particular interest is in how nurses use A&P in clinical decision-making. I'm an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society and have written ancillaries for textbooks from Pearson and Lippincott.
Before that, I did a PhD in Zoology at the University of Alberta and a Masters in Biological Oceanography at the University of Miami. I like animals of all sorts. I also like travelling and have been to every continent except Antarctica.
In my spare time I knit, garden, and write fantasy fiction, mostly about life in the Demonology Department of a modern university.
