    I went to Yale College in the late 70s and then stayed on for graduate school there. I have lived and traveled intermittently in various places throughout Europe over the course of 13 years.

    In the 1990s I jumped from academia into information technology (Deloitte & Touche, IBM), which I left in 2001 for education courses taught at SUNY New Paltz in order to become a school teacher. I've taught two years in Oneonta, and since 2005 in Hastings.

    My husband and I divide our time between New York City and Roxbury, a small village in the Catskills.
