I was born in Wisconsin, one of 8 children, and as active as a girl could be, but had limited sports experience because there was no Title IX when I was going to school. So I went off to college to become a PE teacher. A broken collar bone sustained while goofing off at a dance practice resulted in the need to drop some of my PE courses, and to replace them with health courses so I could retain financial aid. The rest is history. I graduated with double major in Health Education and Physical Education, and was hired by a school district to design their new health curriculum. Breaking my collar bone was a happy accident, since I have spent my career teaching health education, first in the public school setting, and eventually moving into higher education.
I met husband Walt while working on my PhD, which I earned at Oregon State University. Daughter Delaney, was born 5 years later. Walt and I were both very active in softball, and later switched our interests being involved with local community theater. Walt has been a mainstay acting and directing at the Gallery Theater in McMinnville, and Pentacle Theater in Salem. Delaney played sports, performed in local theater productions, and was a Rotary Exchange student, spending a year in Sapporo, Japan. She graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 2011.
Buoyed by Delaney's interest in Japan, and my passion for health education, I've spent quite a few years studying factors that contribute to longevity. I've traveled with students twice to Japan during January term, and have conducted research comparing US and Japanese customs that relate to longevity. I've also led a travel course in Costa Rica, performing service and studying ecology and human health.
At Linfield College, I teach courses in the Health Education major for students who are interested in working with people to promote health and wellbeing in community and school settings. I also teach a variety of classes of interest to the general student body. Two popular courses, Human Sexuality and Drugs in the US fulfill requirements for the Linfield Curriculum.
I feel like the luckiest person on Earth. I teach about my passion, and adore working with college students. In addition, my love of sports, theater and music means that you will find me attending many campus events. Nestled here in this incredible place, doing what I love provides a great deal of satisfaction.
