A third generation Vermonter, I was born in Barre, Vermont. After earning my Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree at the University of Vermont, I joined the Norwich faculty in 1985 (being promoted to associate professor and tenured in 1991, and promoted to full professor in 2001). I have completed 175 of 200 credits necessary for Associateship in the Society of Actuaries. With research interests in the areas of actuarial science and mathematics education, I particularly enjoy creating instructional modules for the web. I served as the Chair of the Mathematics Department from 2002-2006 and as the Dean of Mathematics and Sciences since 2006-2013. Beyond Norwich, I have served on the Vermont Commission on Women since 2006 and was the recipient of the Vermont Women in Higher Education Jackie Gribbon’s Award for leadership in 2008.
I married my husband, Scott, in 1986. We have two totally awesome children (Nicole and Alex) and two yellow Labs!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, yellow Labs, traveling, hiking, snowshoeing, photography, and crocheting.
