I have a BA and MA in Classical Latin, and I was educated at Ball State University (Muncie, IN) and The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I have also done post-graduate work in Latin at the University of Chicago, and I have written a Latin text book (Ovid's Heroides I) which is currently in use in some high schools.

In addition to academic writing, I am also a published fiction writer. My short stories have appeared in various literary journals. I am currently working on a novel.

I have thirteen years of experience teaching in independent schools (Sacred Heart-Griffin High School, Elgin Academy, and the Latin School of Chicago). I have traveled with high school students to many destinations both domestically and in Europe. I am passionate about helping students with their study of Latin (a great language!) and about helping them improve the craftsmanship of their writing--from poetry and fiction to college essays and everything in between.

I have lived in Chicago, a city I love, for ten years. In my spare time, I like playing tennis and traveling. I look forward to helping you!
