My love for the English language began at an early age. As a child, I learned to read by age five and voraciously devoured Greek and Roman mythology, and European history. When I entered college, I had the tremendous privilege of studying Literature and Creative Writing at University of Montana, via their English program with so many talented writers and poets that it was known as "Paris of the West." My background in Creative Writing has stood me in excellent stead throughout my career, and assisted me with reports, presentations, editing, and projects of many kinds. I love the color and nuances of English and delight in bringing this to my students.
