Moore Hall 570

I have lived in Hawaiʻi for 15 years, working for the State of Hawaiʻi for about 6 years, first at the Employee Union Trust Fund, and then Leeward Community College, prior to landing at UH-Mānoa.

Being from a small town in Kentucky, because of my religion, I experienced many cultures and diversities. I got to meet people from all over the world, and still do.

Working in the Department of Second Language Studies at UH-Mānoa, especially in the English Language Institute, is something I truly love. Being able to work with diverse cultures and helping others is part of my upbringing—maybe that is why I love it some much!
