Areas of Interest: social change, adult learning in social movements and community settings, indigenous knowledges, Latin American studies, and complexity thinking. Biography: I have taught at Westminster for 20 years. My classes integrate multiple aspects of learning and social change, with an emphasis on progressive ways to respond to current global crises through activism and education. I have led the development of several programs including the Master of Arts in Community and Organizational Leadership, tracks within the Master of Education, and the Educational Studies Major. My leadership roles include serving as Director of these three programs, faculty representative on the Planning and Priorities Committee, and former Chair of the Faculty Senate. I teach in the MACOL, MED, MAT, Educational Studies, and Honors Programs. Prior to joining the Westminster College faculty, I led educational travel experiences in the southwestern United States and served on staff of the Center for Global Education in Mexico and Guatemala. I edited a weekly newspaper in Westminster, Colorado. My PhD is in Adult Education, my MA is in Latin American Studies/Economic Development, and my BA is in Communication Arts/Journalism.
