I currently live in Seattle, WA with my husband and our two cats. This is ironic given I swore Seattle off after visiting briefly during the 2006 SfAA Annual Meeting in Vancouver, B.C. I hated Seattle on that trip- it was cold, rainy, and dingy looking. And, it wasn’t Florida. I was born in Florida and lived there for 24 years minus a year detour in Southern Georgia. We ended up in Seattle when I took an internship doing market research for my masters. I worked with my internship sponsor, Intrepid Consultants, for over 2 1/2 years and recently resigned so that I can pursue something new. It looks like I’ll have a little time off so I’ll spend it working on the SfAA Podcast Project and the NAPA website.
I graduated from the University of North Texas with a masters in applied anthropology. I was the first class to enter into the UNT online masters program which turned out to be a great experience for me. During my three years in the UNT program, I did research about the online and on-campus graduate experiences with Christina Wasson and Megan Bannon. This research was very interesting as it ended up giving credibility to the online masters and we were able to use the results to enhance online courses at UNT. I also hold a BA degree in applied anthropology from the University of South Florida.
I’ve recently gotten into photography after wishing I could pick it up for years and years.

I am very interested in making anthropology accessible to students and non-anthropologists. This was my inspiration for the SfAA Podcasts.
