Bio:

I have been an Adjunct Assistant Professor, English, at Drexel University since 2005. Prior to this, I was Coordinator, Instructional Design, at Drexel Online, the subsidiary of Drexel University that develops and markets on-line academic programs for the University. Before Drexel, for 19 years I was a program manager for SPX Valley Forge, where I supervised a staff of technical writers, computer programmers, illustrators, and other support personnel, in designing and developing technical training programs in a variety of media. Prior to joining SPX Valley Forge, I was with Educational Communications, Inc. for 11 years; I started as a technical writer and eventually became vice president, finance & development.
